Parthenon
The Parthenon is a temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. Its construction began in 447 BC when the Athenian Empire was at the height of its power. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, generally considered the culmination of the development of the Doric order. Its decorative sculptures are considered some of the high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy and one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments.   (excerpts from Wikipedia)

  1. Hey, thanks for checking my blog so thoroughly! I was overwhelmed to see all your activity when I woke up this morning. I hope to return the favor and spend some time with your photos as well.

    • Hi, Sheri
      I added the Google Earth 3D View links to my posts today.

      You can enjoy the local photos on the Google maps.
      The photos are uploaded to the Panoramio sites by the Google Maps users.
      Photos option will work on Map view or Satellite view.

      By the way, I like the header picture on your blog very much.
