Photographer's Note

A northward view over Athena from the height of the Acropolis.

The gigantic rock in the lower part where we can see people had climbed, is the "Areopagus", which in a free translation means "Ares rock". Here is a Wikipedia page about this ancient place that strangely acted as a high-court for criminals.
The Church of Agia Marina is shown on the far left side, it has a 5 semi-domes covered with red tiles.

An easy climb to the "Areopagus", short distance from the main entrance of the Acropolis , its location on map is: 37.9723, 23.7234 .
