The Parthenon

Nashville was coined the "Athens of the South", and has the Parthenon (and Tennessee Titans) to help stay true to that name. The Parthenon stands in the center of Centennial Park, and is a replica of the original Parthenon in Athens, Greece. It is truly a site to see, and can be toured during the day.
