Archeological Sites Observe Full Moon

Thousands of natives and visitors enjoyed the full moon on Tuesday evening.  They observed the full moon by strolling next to 92 archaeological sites across Greece.
Continuing a tradition which started 13 years ago, The Greek Ministry of Culture and Tourism kept all major archaeological monuments sites open to the public until after sunset. Beginning in 1997, once per year Greeks and tourists have an opportunity to marvel at August’s full moon; sitting next to The Parthenon or The Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion until 01:00 a.m. free of charge.
A string of concerts took place in front of The New Acropolis Museum and dozens of other sites across the country.  Greek artists performed songs that mainly referred to the moon such as “Let’s take a stroll to the moon”, which was composed by the late composer Manos Hatzidakis.
