Temple of Hephaestus, Athens

Temple of Hephaestus, Athens

One of the top-rated Athens attractions includes the Temple of Hephaestus. Like the Parthenon it’s a temple constructed in the Doric order, but it’s simpler and more complete. The arches, friezes and ceiling are almost all intact and you can get closer to the monument and feel the history.

Standing alone without scaffolding or cranes, the complete structure of this temple helps give a sense of what the other Greek monuments on the Acropolis must have looked like in their time. A temple dedicated to the god of metal-working and craftsmanship, it was built in the same Golden Age of Athens as the Parthenon. Detailed carvings depict the Labours of Hercules and the Labours of Theseus. It’s located near the Agora of Athens on top of the Agoraios Kolonos hill.

Lit up at night, this temple is beautiful to visit in the evening. When you’re done here, hunt for bargains in Monastiraki Square or duck into the air-conditioned Acropolis Museum or the National Archaeological Museum to find out about the features and history of the area.
