Generally considered to be at the origin of the Western civilizations that we know today, ancient Greece was one of the major civilizations of antiquity.
Greek civilization as we understand it would have started to develop from the 2nd millennium BC. JC (although it is important to note that elaborate cultures and civilizations have existed in Greece and its surroundings since the 4th millennium BC such as the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations for example).
Culture, politics, way of thinking, mathematics, philosophy, art, architecture or even the Olympic Games… many things that we all know today and which are an integral part of our culture have arisen or have been propagated by their civilization.
A precious culture, which bequeathed us many riches despite the millennia that separate us.
Their mythology, their legends and their magical, inspiring and mysterious gods.
Zeus, Athena, Poseidon or even Heracles, Ulysses or Theseus.
Thousand-year-old temples in their honor are still standing today for the former.
Then texts and epics such as the famous works of Homer, The Iliad and The Odyssey, written more than 2800 years ago, still praise the latter.
Their impressive sculptures and temples such as the Parthenon in Athens, for example, are artistic marvels and have inspired many succeeding cultures such as the Romans.
