The ancient Agora of Athens (also called the Classical Agora) is the best-known example of an ancient Greek agora, located to the northwest of the Acropolis and bounded on the south by the hill of the Areopagus and on the west by the hill known as the Agoraios Kolonos, also called Market Hill. The Agora's initial use was for a commercial, assembly, or residential gathering place.
One of the few conserved buildings in Athens. Nice view of the Parthenon.
Amazing piece of ancient history!!! Very well preserved. Is definitely worth to see it. Surprisingly there were not many people by the time I got there, around 2 pm. It's normally full at that time. So I suggest you to go early and avoid the mass of tourists
Also known as the Agora, or Ancient Greek Agora. Nice site. Worth the time.
A nice site overall, in the midst of the old town. Worth a visit if you have time to spare.
The most complete of ancient structures. Another must see in Athens. Entrance between monastriraki and thissio metro stations.
Don't skip this place! It is a very well maintained temple from the old Greek times. Most of the original structure is still standing and gives a good representation of what temples and structures looked like. It is Amazon to stand near it and just think about how long that building has been standing.
The best preserved temple in Athens. It's all there and worth visiting!
Amazing piece of history preserved almost intact throughout the years. Really recommend visiting the temple with the help of an audioguide that tells the whole history of the place.
An awe-inspiring and wonderfully preserved temple situated in one of the most vibrant areas of Athens. Furthermore, it's nearby a plethora of other essential sights. A very worthwhile attraction.
A fully intact greek temple, only a short walk from the Parthenon! Why do more people not know about it????
Definitely worth the walk! If you like photographs, bring a wide-angle as space around this temple is quite limited.
In the Archaelogical site called "Ancient Agora of Athens", you can visit the Temple of Hephaestus (also known as Thision). It is one of the best preserved ancient Temples in Greece ! According to the traveller and geographer Pausanias wo deities were jointly worshipped in the Temple: God Hephaestus (protector of metallurgists) and goddess Athena Ergani.
Very well preserved. We can see up close, only the interior is not accessible. Warning : difficult to o access for people with mobility disabilities.
One of the most beautiful and well maintained ancient Greek temples at the lively historical centre of Athens city. Good photo opportunities from the areas around the temple. Picturesque scenery, it has also pretty nice lighting during the evening hours.
