Take your photograph of this iconic Greek sculptural image and move on. Most of the original ladies stand clean and proper and up real close in the Arcropolis Museum, which is worth a visit to put all this into perspective. Not that it is not...More

One of several structures at the top of the Acropolis rock so you will see it when you go to the Acropolis. The statues of the women are nice and there are a couple of them in the museum too.
