Ancient Athens

The famous Porch of the Caryatids.

The Erechteion located at the north side of the Acropolis, the Parthenon (which is forever under restoration) and The Odeon of Herodes Atticus which was built in 161 AD by the Athenian Herodes Atticus to remember his wife Regilla.  During the Athens Festival the Odeon still hosts concerts and dramatic performances for up to 5000 spectators.
