architecture

Greek architecture is known for its columns. There are three types of columns: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. Other types of Greek art include pottery, sculptures and paintings. Every city-state had a temple that was dedicated to a specific god. They went there to worship and make sacrifices. Some leaders like Pericles and Alexander the Great spread the Greek architecture.
