earliest settlement, dating from before 3000 BC, was situated on
the summit of the Acropolis, protected on all sides except the west by
its steep slopes. Named for the city's patron goddess, Athena, the
ancient city developed mainly to the north of this hill, around the
Agora, or marketplace. Parallel walls, called the Long Walls, made a
protected thoroughfare between the city and its port of Piraeus. The
most glorious period in the city's history was the 5th century BC, when
it was the cultural and artistic center of the classical world.
Although overshadowed by the rise of Rome, it remained a city of social
and intellectual importance during the Roman Empire. St. Paul visited
Athens, and the Emperor Hadrian lavished money on its public buildings.
Thereafter the city declined in importance. It was subject to attack by
Slavs and was reduced to a petty provincial town in the Byzantine
Empire. In 1204, Athens was occupied by the Crusaders and remained
under Western rule until its capture by the Turks in 1456. Greece
gained independence from the Turks in the war of 1821-32, and in 1833,
Athens became the capital of Greece. In 1833, Athens was a small urban
settlement of fewer than 4,000 people located north of the Acropolis in
a district known today as the Plaka. Modern Athens developed to the
north and east of the old city. The architect Eduard Schaubert laid out
a network of wide, straight boulevards that converge at Syntagma
(Constitution) Square and the Royal Palace, lying to the east of the
Athens is renowned mainly for its history, its monuments like the Acropolis and the Parthenon, its Philosophers like Socrates and Plato, its great leaders like Pericles, its dramaturgists like Sophocles, Aeschylus and Aristophanes and its great sculpturers like Phidias and Praxiteles, but it is also the cradle of democracy.
The city has a lot of contrasts creating an unique atmosphere that no other European town has. Brand new skyscrapers next to neoclassic mansions, department stores and fancy boutiques next to Byzantine churches and ancient monuments.
Athens is also noteworthy for its fine archaeological collections, especially those contained in the National Archeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum. The town's important cultural remains, however, are its numerous architectural monuments, dating from ancient times and later periods. Fore among these is the Acropolis, the ancient fortified hill on which stand the Erechtheum, Parthenon, and Propylaea, all of the 5th century BC. To the south of the Acropolis are the Theater of Dionysus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and to the west, the Areopagus (council chamber) in which St. Paul spoke. The agora is partially excavated. The stoa, or colonnaded walk, of Attalos, which is located there, has been reconstructed and now holds a sizable collection of Greek antiquities all connected with the Athenian Democracy. The town of Athens also contains a number of fine Orthodox churches of the Byzantine period.
