Traveling Thursday in Greece

Traveling Thursday in Greece

Art 3.10.16 cropped

#TravelingThursday in Greece! Art made it to the Acropolis of Athens! He had his picture taken in front of the Parthenon, but soon got a bit tired of the hordes of selfie-stick wielding tourists. Art then decided to get away from all the tourists and hangout at the  Erectheion instead. Also located on the Acropolis, the construction of this unique temple was completed in 406 BC. Dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena, the Erechtheion is famous for its porch featuring several caryatids (statues serving as columns).

greece - art

Greetings from Greece! Art is sitting on Mount Parnassos and overlooking the Temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece, which has suffered all sorts of damage. After being built in the 7th century B.C., it had been rebuilt twice in antiquity after a fire and an earthquake, and now suffers from decay due to its soft, limestone material.
