The Goddess of War and Wisdom who lives in Nashville, Tennessee


Everyone knows about the Parthenon the Ancient Greeks built to honor Athena–their goddess of war and wisdom. But did you know Nashville, Tennessee has built a replica that houses a full-size Athena statue? It is free to visit but about $6/person to enter and see the art gallery and statue.

Magnificent!
