These two heroes defended the Acropolis from the Turks in the year 1826.If you want to take a look at this monument, which is one of the most significant monuments in Athens, then you have to ascend the Acropolis from Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, which is one of the stop for tourist buses. Remember to follow the footpath beside the Odeion of Herodes Atticus theatre, and not the wide paved pathway, as this will lead you the pillar, which is on the left side of the path. Once there, you can marvel at the bravery of the two men who are honored by the monument.
