Built around 2,500 years ago, the Parthenon is a temple that was made for Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war. For many years, the temple was used for worship but was also damaged several times. Designated as a World Heritage site in 1987, UNESCO wanted to preserve this beautiful and historic symbol of Ancient Greece. The Parthenon’s classic architecture was the model for many Western structures. Even UNESCO’s logo is inspired by the Parthenon!
