I’ve already talked a little about The Parthenon in my Weekend in Nashville post, and as I mentioned there, there were so many photos and facts to share about this amazing site of architecture that I would share more about it by creating a separate post.
I would have never known that this great landmark could be seen in Nashville until I saw the movie Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief with my son. He is a huge fan of the movie and The Parthenon was featured in this one. So on our trip to Nashville, I made sure to put The Parthenon on our itinerary. And how lucky were we because as you can see in the photos, it was such a gorgeous day. So gorgeous we soaked it up and stayed at the park a little longer after touring The Parthenon.
The Parthenon is located inside Centennial Park and it is the centerpiece of the park. The park has a land area of 132 acres and has this small artificial lake called Lake Watauga.
