The Hill of the Muses, the tallest of the three hills to the west of the Acropolis, offered the best views of the city.  The crowds of pilgrims (and slaves) were clearly visible climbing up towards the Propylaia, and on towards the Parthenon.  From here, a frieze depicting the muses looked down on the temples, bestowing their divine guidance.  It was said to be a good place to come for inspiration.


It certainly gave Delphi an idea.


I’m never climbing this big hill again, she thought.
