Acquired by Proba's High Resolution Camera on 7 July 2004, this image shows the close-packed centre of Athens. The large stretch of open ground to the left of the image is Filopappos Hill; just to the right of it is the famous Acropolis Hill, upon which stand numerous ancient monuments including the large white mass of the Parthenon. The long straight road running up from the base of the image is Syngrou Avenue, ending at the ruins of the Temple of Olympian Zeus (or Olympeion), and beyond it the National Garden.
