An extensive, internationally acclaimed restoration and conservation programme has been taking place on the Acropolis since 1975. Comprising a number of projects that aim to stabilise, conserve and prolong the life of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis, the programme is supported by the Greek state and the European Union. Take a moment to read about the Acropolis Restoration Project and browse their website, it’s impressive!
