Carlos coco was quicker than me posting a panorama of the Acropolis despite he was there almost a month after me. But I had this POV and I choose a better hour, with much more light, after all, who would think about shooting when it's neither day nor night?

While the POV of Carlo's post is from the Southwest of the Acropolis, this one is from Northwest. I was standing near the beautiful Temple of Hephaestus, which many label as the best preserved ancient Greek temple, which lies in the Ancient Agora, the political, and later also commercial, centre of of ancient Athens. The area is now a park named after Thiseio, which is also another name of the temple of Hephaestus.

The long white building in the middle is the Stoa of Attalos. The hill on the left is Lykavittos and I guess you all recognise the rocky hill on the right.

The image is a stitch of 3 horizontal shots.

WS's: Other views of the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora [1, 2].

Location of the POV (latitude, longitude): 37.97531,23.7216
