Ancient Agora, Athens Overview

The Ancient Agora is a well-known archaeological site located northwest of the Acropolis in Greece. A Greek agora or marketplace established in the 6th century BC, it is a lush green space that was used for commercial, legal, political and social activities. It is home to several residential and public buildings that are in ruin, including temples of Olympia Gods, altars, fountains, statues, stoas, etc.

The Ancient Agora was destroyed and rebuilt many times. The temple of Hephaestus is one of the best-preserved monuments here, along with others like those dedicated to Zeus and Apollo. The Stoa of Attalos is another important attraction here. It was formerly used as a trade market; today, it is the site of the Museum of the Ancient Agora. Some other notable structures here are the Monument of the Eponymous Heroes, a 3rd-century synagogue, the Library of Pantainos, the Byzantine Church of the Holy Apostles and the Peristyle Court.
