This SPOT image centers of the Greek capital, Athens. Looking closely at the center of the city, just above a cloud shadow we can see a green area which represents the Acropolis. The name literally means "Highest City" the most famous building contained within it can just about be seen, the Parthenon. The Stadium where the first modern Olympic Games was held in 1896 can be seen just south of here.
