In the years that follow, art and thought flourish and the ambitious Athenian statesman Pericles coordinates aunique group of artists to transform the rocky hill into the exceptional monument also called the “Sacred Rock”. The Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheionand the temple of Athena are the greatest monuments built during that time.
