The shining example of this is the majestic Acropolis, which looks down upon Athens , attracts thousands of visitors, and can be seen from many homes in the centre. This ancient temple complex is the symbol of the city, and was once dedicated to the patron goddess Pallas Athene.

In the old town, the architecture is something to behold, which includes the Athens City Hall, Kapnikarea Church, and the Tower of the Winds, which once served as an ancient weather station. If you are interested in Greek history, mythology, and classical architecture, then the high-quality portfolio of apartments and townhouses in the city centre will be of great interest.
