Exploring the Ancient Agora was a highlight of my visit to Athens. Everyone interacts with spaces differently; for me, I could feel the history here, and I tried to transport myself to a time when the site was a daily marketplace. There are so many things to see here, so I’ll break up the photographs into sections.
The Temple of Hephaestus is one of the dominant landmarks in the Agora.
The Ancient Agora Museum has a terrific collection of artifacts, and it offers a shady, cool place to rest and get out of the sun (for dogs, too, as you’ll see below). The views of the Agora from the second floor are really nice.
The Church of the Holy Apostles is located here, too.
I’ll wrap up with photos taken around the site.
Here’s what the Ancient Agora looks like from Areopagus. The Temple of Hephaestus is on the left, and the museum is the long building on the right.
