Parthenon

The Parthenon, here pictured from backyard, is the biggest temple standing on the Acropolis ("city hill"). Built during the 5th century BC, it was badly damaged when the Venetian attacked the city and bombed it with mortars! Being used as a gunpowder magazine, it was almost annihilated and only the external columns stood still. Afterwards, many souvenirs were made from the pieces of the damaged statues.
Nowadays these glorious ruins can testify that Human Folly is limitless.
