The Ancient Agora, northwest of the Acropolis, was the centre of the city in the Classical and Hellenistic periods. Here were the most important public buildings and sanctuaries and intense administrative, political, judicial, commercial, social and religious activity. The most important monuments of the site are the Stoa of Attalos, which today houses the Museum of Ancient Agora, the temple of Hephaestus, the Tholos and the Bouleuterion. Remarkable is that in order to reveal the monuments it was necessary to demolish more than 400 recent buildings.

Temple of Hephaestus
In the Ancient Agora dominates the temple of Hephaestus. Also known as “Theseion” due to its previously erroneous attribution of the temple to Theseus, from which the wider area took its name.
Areopagus
Between the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora stands the rocky hill of Areopagus, which has been related to mythological traditions and important historical events.
