The tomb is massive and has a beautiful bas-relief of a deceased warrior lying on a bed.We observed the changing of the guard on September 29, 2011. It was an awe-inspiring occurrence. The photo does not do justice to the uniforms or march-step used. They raise each foot, extend it upwards at a 45 degree angle, with the opposing arm at the same angle, and then step forward. There are videoclips on YouTube that show it. Definitely a must-see if in Athens!
