ACROPOLIS, an accessible area for tourists-passengers with disabilities
The greatest and finest sanctuary of ancient Athens, dedicated primarily to its patron, the goddess Athena, dominates the centre of the modern city from the rocky crag known as the Acropolis. The most celebrated myths of ancient Athens, its greatest religious festivals, earliest cults and several decisive events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct. The monuments of the Acropolis stand in harmony with their natural setting. These unique masterpieces of ancient architecture have influenced art and culture for many centuries. The Acropolis of the fifth century BC is the most accurate reflection of the splendour, power and wealth of Athens at its greatest peak, the golden age of Perikles.
The present condition of the place is a result of the works of Pericles who had rebuilt the temples of Acropolis having had as his basic partner sculpturer, Fidias. He had already completed the restoration of the wall that Kimon had begun. First they built the temple of Virgin Athena - the Parthenon. Iktinos was the architect of this temple. Fidias and his students were the general directors and creators of the sculptured decoration. It was built between 447 and 432 BC.
