Tower of the winds

“What is history? An echo of the past in the future; a reflex from the future on the past”~ Victor Hugo

I’ve been to Acropolis area so many times that I’ve lost count and after 11 years in Athens, only last December, I discovered that there is a Tower of the winds, underneath Acropolis, where the Ancient agora/forum/ is. It’s quite a spectacular little building that I plan on visiting again, as soon as I can! Give me stones and ruins, and tell me that they have years and years of history and I need nothing else to be happy, as long as I hold my camera and I have the time to absorb the view and imagine a story or two!

    Marvelous :) I love this spot underneath the Acropolis! It’s like the nymphs of the wind will come out and play with you.
