The Acropolis is a unique district of the Greek civilization in Civilization VI. It replaces the Theater Square and can only be built on Hills.


The following buildings can be constructed in an Acropolis:



The Acropolis is an interesting replacement for the Theater Square. It must be placed on a hill, but is cheaper to build and provides +2 Civ6Culture Culture if adjacent to a City Center. Therefore, when settling, you should look out for spots which contain at least one adjacent Hills tile.

Also, each Acropolis awards 1 Envoy6 Envoy when completed. This is particularly useful for Pericles, whose leader ability functions best when he becomes the Suzerain of many city-states.

Civilopedia entryEdit

In ancient Greece, acropolis meant, quite literally, "upper city." And in Athens, Corinth, Argos, Thebes, and elsewhere, that's exactly what it was – a portion of the town built upon an elevated area, often a hill with steep slopes, that was eminently defensible. Should the outer walls fall to invaders, a final stand could be made in the acropolis. In time, in many places, the old acropolis became the nucleus of a sprawling new city. During the Archaic Period in Greece, as the cities grew and the threat of barbarians lessened, these old upper districts underwent urban renewal, with temples, theaters, forums, palaces, government buildings and the like replacing the humble houses, markets, barracks and squares that once occupied the summit.
