Transfer to Acropolis
Acropolis literally means the citadel of a town chosen for its location to be used as a fortress during the war years. It is built on a high hill in order to have a full view of the town laying down below and giving the advantage of defence.
So the word itself does not distinguish the famous greek city of Athens but a lot of cities have a location specially used for the same reason, such as Rome, Celtic Bratislava or even the Classic Rock in Edinburgh.
So what makes Greece`s acropolis so special is the exquisite building of Parthenon that was built in 438 B.C. and designed by Iktinos and Kallikratis.
It became so famous during the Archaic period, so soon, that other cities such as Crete, recreated the same pattern as the Doriansn Lato.
Due to its unique design, the ruins of Mission San Juan Capistrano’s Great Stone Church in California has been called “American Acropolis” because the greek style resemblance. Facebook
