The Lyceum of Aristotle The Lyceum of Aristotle
At the centre of Athens, near the metro station of Evangelismos, they have unearthed the remains of the Lyceum palaestra, one of the most ancient “gymnasia” of the city. The gymnasia gradually evolved into important intellectual centres, while in the 4th century BC the first schools of philosophy were founded in them. At the area of the Lyceum Aristotle founded, in 335 BC, the famous Peripatetic School, whose philosophical and scientific researches played a decisive role to the formation of western civilization.
