Acropolis, Athens Greece, 2003

An impressive building on a truly impressive site, and an incredible history.

It's hard to overestimate the influence of Athens on Western culture and in large part this is where much of that history occurred.

When I was last there they were restoring it in time for the 2004 Olympics, so there was much scaffolding to be seen. But the Old Lady still shone through, having survived earthquakes, wars, fire, explosions and much more.
