The Propylaea, access to the Acropolis

The Propylaea is the entrance to a sanctuary or important building in ancient Greece. Here we climb up to reach the Acropolis, the 156-meter-high table mountain in the Greek capital Athens. Already in Mycenaean times (2,000 - 1,200 BC) there was a castle here and in classical Greek antiquity (6th and 5th century BC) it became the religious center of the city. The access gos through the Propylaea on the west side of the hill. In the past visitors could rest here on beds after the climb and then go to one of the temples with sacrificial animals.
