The Parthenon in Athens was built in 447 BC. Yes, that’s over 2,400 years old! The structure still stands proudly atop the city, and serves as an epic reminder of ancient Greece 🏛🇬🇷

Desde muy pequeña quise conocerla, y hace unos meses estábamos allí, entre ruinas, dioses mitológicos y la cuna de la democracia. . . 📍Atenas, Grecia 🇬🇷 . . El Parthenon, espléndido, lidera la ciudad desde lo alto del acrópolis, dando culto a Atenea, la diosa madre de los atenienses. #atenas #grecia #greece #europa #europe #traveleurope #partenon #parthenon #acropolis #atenea #diosa #mitologia #templo #travelers #redblogviajeros #travelpics #travelgram #travel #passionpassport #wanderlust #instagood #instatravel #loveit #lovetravel 🌍

Where is this place❓ Anyone recognises it❓❓ That's one of the things you will see when you dive into discovering the ancient city of Athens. 💎 While the highlight of the agenda is the Acropolis and the Agora, when you walk down the hill you will end up in a maze of little streets. One of them leads to Kerameikos - a potter's quarter. 💎 The Sacred Road to Eleusis, where one of the most important rituals of the ancient world was taking place, led right through the middle of Kerameikos. ➡️ Not only that as it was also a site of an important cemetery and funerary sculptures were raised along the road in honour of significant individuals and the gods. The replica you see here adorned the burial monument of Dionysios of Kollitos.⬅️ 💎 Athens is one of the cities I can never get enough! I've lived there, I vacationed there and I still dream of going back. Especially now as I have some Greek friends at home. We talk about the magic of their country and customs and I know that a great summer is coming! 💞If you want to explore Greece, do it with the most beautiful people and explore the highlights as well as the off-the-beaten-track destinations and activities @findyourlefkada 💞 💞 💞 💞 💞 #travelog #awesome_naturepix #theprettyreckless #greekislands #aroundtheworldpix #visualoflife #unlimitedparadise #beyondthewanderlust #thecreative #travelon #flashesofdelight #ig_greece #greeklife #discoveryearth #wu_greece #forahappymoment #dametraveler #discovergreece #exploringtheglobe #travel_greece #travelawesome #acropolis #parthenon #athens

kyriakospapadopulos. The director of the #British #Museum Hartwig Fischer told #Greek publi

The director of the #British #Museum Hartwig Fischer told #Greek publication Ta Nea that the #Parthenon Sculptures do not belong to #Greece and will not be returned to #Athens. “The Trustees of the British Museum feel the obligation to preserve the collection in its entirety, so that things that are part of this #collection remain part of this collection.” During the interview he was asked if he believes #Greek people are right to want the Parthenon sculptures back, he replied, “I can certainly understand that the Greeks have a special and passionate relationship with this part of their #cultural #heritage. The 2,500-year-old marble sculptures were removed from the Parthenon by Lord #Elgin in the early 1800s and he then sold the marbles to the British #government, who passed them on to the British Museum in 1817 and they have remained on exhibit there since then. “Yes, I understand that there is a desire to see all of the Parthenon Sculptures in Athens The other half of the Parthenon Sculptures are currently in the #Acropolis Museum in Greece,” added Fischer. Britain’s Labour leader Jeremy #Corbyn has supported Greece fight to gain the Marbles back and pledged to return them to Athens if he becomes Prime Minister. When #Fischer was asked about Corbyn’s promise, he responded, “I think that this is Mr Corbyn’s personal view on the question, that you take note of. Obviously, that is not the stance and the view of the Trustees of the Museum.” Ta Nea also posed the question if he would accept that Greece is the legal owner of the Parthenon Sculptures, to which he replied, “No, I would not. The objects that are part of the collection of the British Museum are in the fiduciary ownership of the Trustees of the Museum.” #britishmuseum #sculpture #hellas #hellenic #archeology

no.____7. I truly hadn't been that invested in visiting the #parthenon, like eve

I truly hadn't been that invested in visiting the #parthenon, like ever. When I decided to include #Athens in my trip back in August I didn't know how much I'd love it. It was my last stop and I thought 'Well, I gotta get it in'. As I was walking up the steps I got this overwhelming feeling. It was totally a majestic vision out of a dream or a movie. I instinctually placed my hand on the closet marble column as I approached; then to realize that's not allowed. I was informed immediately. Haha. No joke, I was encompassed by the immense power of this structure that it escaped me. #greece #solotravel #travel #blueskies #somuchhistory #history #fbf #thattime #thebestadventuresaresolo
