Athens, Greece – The ruins of the Emperor Hadrian’s Library created in AD 132, in Athens, Greece; like many ancient monuments in the city, restoration is a continual process. Scaffolding involved in the process can be seen. All around the ruins, is modern day Athens. In the background is the Mosque of Tzisdaraki (building with the dome), named after a former Turkish Governor and built around 1760. To the left of the image are people on Monastiraki Square.
