Overview

Socrates strolled through the Agora 2500 years ago engaging people in long, philosophical discussions. This unique archaeological park served as the city's marketplace from the 6th Century BCE to the 6th Century CE. Scattered throughout the Agora are statues and ruins of numerous buildings, the most interesting of which is the well-preserved Temple of Hephaistos or Thission, built in the 5th Century BCE. Many archaeological finds are on display inside the reconstructed Stoa Attalou, a majestic building from the 2nd Century BCE.
