Photographer's Note

I suppose there are a lot of sacred rocks around the world, but in this case the use of this phrase is certainly justified. It comes naturally to your mind when you see so many ancient temples on the hill standing proudly like Acropolis does above the city. This picture was taken from the top of the Lycabettus/Lykavittos/Λυκαβηττού Hill. It is the highest viewpoint in Athens and offers stunning 360 degrees views over the town, including Acropolis and with the sea on the horizon. The view is spectacular although quite distant. I have showed you before views from Filopapou Hill, from Areopagus, from above Monastiraki Square, so with this panorama I believe I have ticked off the most viewpoints towards Acropolis.
