About The Ancient Agora

The Ancient Agora is close to the centre of Limenas and is the remains of a market place, cultural and political centre of the original settlement that was built between 400 BC and 200 BC.

The Ancient Agora is completely free to enter, it’s open most days but usually closes at around 3pm. Inside you’ll find a number of ruins from previous structures as well as columns, stone carvings and much more. A walk round the Agora will give you a small insight as to what life was like over 2000 years ago.

Unfortunately there are no informational signs around the site so it’s a little hard to know exactly what everything is. You can always purchase a guide book like this one that you can take with you and will offer all the relevant information as you walk round the site.

The other issue with the Ancient Agora is that it’s not maintained by a groundskeeper so the grass is often quite long and the paths around are just those that have been trodden down by visitors. The long grass makes it a mosquito haven so don’t forget to put on insect repellent when visiting.

As the Agora is in the centre of Limenas you can easily combine it with the other attractions that the capital has to offer or just as part of a normal day if you are staying in the capital.
