My favourite. And perhaps the first and oldest site on the Acropolis. The Porch of the Caryatids never fails to impress even though we know that the present girls are copies. It is a shame that the back ground is spoiled by screens

This distinctive temple has not lost its appeal, despite the removal of the caryatids to the Acropolis Museum and their replacement with copies. The only sad thing was that they have filled in the area surrounded by the caryatids so you no longer have the...More

smaller and less grand than the parthenon, it nontheless stands in perfect harmony with the parthenon; do not miss the cariathids in the museum.

While the Pantheon gets all the fame, the Erechtheion which stands only 20 yards away, wins the award for coolest pillars. The Athenian statues are definitely worth stopping to take a closer look. This ruin also was under restoration during our visit.

This was actually my favorite part of the Acropolis. I think the Caryatids are just beautiful. There was restoration work going on when I was there, but it's relatively unobtrusive for photos.

I liked this temple, although smaller than the Parthenon, because the "porch" has a roof with caryatids (women) instead of columns. It has been partially restored so some of the walls and columns are back in place.

Make sure you read up on this before you visit. Also, make sure to see the real Carytids in the New Acropolis Museum!!

All other reviewers stated this is part of Acropolis complex. This building and Parthenon are the staples, Although the statues are replicas it does not take away from the experience and gives you another reason to visit the New Acropolis Museum where they are located.

Part of the Acropolis Complex, this site seems a bit better preserved than some of the other buildings there. The columns are quite impressive and a testament to Greek architecture. Site seeing does not get too much better than this MUST SEE Place. Do not...More

I saw the columns in the junior high text book. It was very touching that I could see them with my own eyes. Only the replicas are in the place of beautiful ladies, but still was very impressive.
