It’s a true treasury of historic and archaeological landmarks. Tenths of thousands of tourists come to Athens to see Mount Lycabettus and the Acropolis of Athens as this is where first settlers appeared on the territory of modern Athens 6 thousand years ago. The city was formed around these two landmarks. Aphrodite Temple, better known under the name Parthenon, is considered the main historic landmark of Athens. The building has a miraculous construction from an archaeological point of view. Built in the 5th century BC, Parthenon consists of numerous columns and looks very light weighted at a glance. There is another important landmark nearby the Erechtheion that was constructed in the 5th century. Many centuries ago a beautiful palace stood on the site of the ancient temple. According to a legend, the dispute between Poseidon and Aphrodite took place at that palace. The territory around the Erechtheion is decorated with beautiful statues, the most famous of which are Caryatid sculptures. One of the statues was brought to the British Museum in order to keep it in safety. Many tourist destinations are located in the territory of Attica the capital region of the country.
