Acropolis of Athens was built 2500 years ago by Iktinos and Kallicrates in honor of goddess Athena with its most recognizable temple The Parthenon built entirely from Pentelikon marble. It is an architectural wonder as it is built curved in order to look completely straight from distance. The Roman Agora was built between 19BC and 11BC by the Roman Emperor Augustus. It was a market place, an open market of the time. The octagonal Water deposit called Tower of the Winds is considered one of the oldest meteorological stations in the world.
