"You must yourselves realise the power of Athens, and feed your eyes upon her from day to day, till love from her fills your hearts you must reflect that it was by courage, sense of duty, and a keen felling of hour in action that men were enabled to win all this..."
Just the sight of the Acropolis is already breathtaking for the average
tourist, but once you have read the previous chapters you might discover things
which remain hidden for the untrained viewer. Hopefully this final chapter of
the site will visualize the previous chapters some more, and hopefully will
you now realise that the Greek civilization truly has been one of the greatest
civilizations known to mankind. Enjoy your visit to this sacred place!
