The Temple of Hephaestus 449 BC, also as Theseion after an Athenian hero, is the best-preserved ancient Greek temple; it remains standing largely as built. This temple was the first in Athens to be made of marble and it overlooks the Agora of Athens.  Construction started 2 years before the Parthenon and was dedicated Hephaestus and Athena Ergane, a form of the city's patron goddess responsible for pottery and other crafts.  The project was sponsored by the Athenian politician Pericles.

The New Acropolis Museum is considered to be one of the most important museums in the world. After 9 years and at a cost 150€ million it is indeed a modern masterpiece housing the world’s most precious artifacts. It is situated near the base of the Acropolis with a direct view of the Parthenon.  Its foundations are a key feature of the building, which can be seen through the glass floors. They are designed in such way that let the building afloat above the ruins of the ancient city.
