Achilleion

Achilleion

The villa of Achilleion was built for Empress Elizabeth of Austria in 1890 as a memorial to her son, Rudolf, after his death by suicide. The villa, Neoclassical in style, features numerous statues and motifs associated with Achilles both inside and out. The gardens are also set with a number of statues commissioned by the Empress, including the famous 'Dying Achilles' by German sculptor Herter. Part of the villa is now a museum, with a casino housed on the second floor.
