Acropolis Monuments Preservation Services

As the Athens Acropolis and its Panthenon are closed as a measure to limit the spread of Covid19, the Greek public managing authorities of the Greek capital’s monumental sites offer to explore the monuments online.

The National Center for Documentation and Electronic Content (EKT) has gathered in its infrastructure significant volume of digital documentation of science and culture, which it has made available online. 

More concretely, the public cultural institution made available three digital repositories of the Acropolis Monuments Preservation Services, as well as two interactive applications that provide access to more than 4000 items of the Acropolis, the Parthenon and Zoforos.

Researchers can access construction details of the Acropolis monuments, and thus monitor the progress of restoration and maintenance work, while teachers can also refer to the Acropolis educational content repository to access open educational resources and enrich their lesson.
