Pontikonisi, Corfu, originally uploaded by Ava Babili.

The island named Pontikonisi (Greek meaning "mouse island") although small is very green with many trees, and the highest natural point, (not counting the trees or man made structures such as the monastery), is about 2 m. Pontikonisi is home of the monastery of Pantokrator (11th or 12th century). It is the white stone staircase of the Monastery that when viewed from afar gives the impression of a (mouse) tail that gave the island its name: Mouse island.

Her temple

Her temple, originally uploaded by Andreas C[Y].

The Parthenon (ancient Greek: Παρθενών) was a temple of Athena, built in the 5th century BC on the Acropolis of Athens. It is considered the most famous surviving building of ancient Greece, and has been praised as the finest achievement of Greek architecture. Its decorative sculptures are considered one of the high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy. It is regarded as one of the world's greatest cultural monuments(from Wikipedia).

Here I have to say that the Greek Governement, the Greek nation and all moral people wishes for the return of the Elgin marbles(or Parthenon marbles) to Greece! Two-thirds of the Parthenon frieze is in British Museum in London and only a third remains in Athens. The British museum as well as the British Governemnt for years refuses the return of the marbles to the real owner!

Illustrating the civilizations, myths and religions that flourished in Greece over a period of more than 1,000 years, the Acropolis, the site of four of the greatest masterpieces of classical Greek art – the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheum and the Temple of Athena Nike – can be seen as symbolizing the idea of world heritage(Unesco World Heritage)
