I am just now reporting on an event from last March:
The Acropolis was formally proclaimed as the pre-eminent monument on
the European Cultural Heritage list of monuments. Even the French Culture Minister said
"this is the birthplace of the European civilisation".



This week the organisers of the New Seven Wonders of the World indicated that the Acropolis was currently in first place as the most significant monument. This is among public online and telephone voters and there are still about 24 days before the winner is announced on my birthday. See my previous post.


As I have said before it would be a crime against humanity for anyone to come to Greece and not see the Parthenon and visit the Acropolis.
