Hadrian’s Arch (known in Greek as Hadrian’s Gate) is a monumental gateway. The beautiful structure is located on one of Athens’ main roadways. It is within walking distance from Syntagma Square — between the rock of the Acropolis and the temple of Olympian Zeus.
The construction of this temple started in 131 BC to celebrate the arrival of the Roman Emperor Hadrian and to thank him for his benefactions to the city.
Its architecture resembles Roman-style arches. The arch is made of marble. It reaches 18 meters high, 12.5 meters wide, and 2.3 meters in depth. The design is fully symmetrical.
