Beulé Gate

It is often said that the Beulé Gate is today’s entry to the Acropolis. But instead, it is usually used as exit. So, our Acropolis circuit ends here, too. The arriving visitors are led around the Beulé Gate shortly before going up to the Propylaea, and just below Nike’s temple enter the staircase leading up to the Acropolis Plateau, passing through the Propylaea.

Remarkable about the Beulé Gate is its high base. It was once used as base for a quadriga, then as monument for the Roman viceregent. It consists of two towers, of different height, and was used for defense. It is named after its discoverer, the French archaeologist Ernest Beulé.
