Work continues on the restoration of the Parthenon monument on the Acropolis of Athens Greece. The latest works started in 2019 and will last several years, officials say.
Historically, the Parthenon is the temple that was built in honor of the goddess Athena, protector of the city of Athens. Many architects of the time collaborated for its construction. The architects of the Parthenon were Iktinos and Kallikrates. The first damage to the Parthenon was done by Franciscan Morosini in 1687, when a shell blew up the storehouse with gunpowder that Ali agas had installed.
