Interesting
Covering an area of around 2.5ha, the Agora - today a field of ruins - was once the heart of ancient Athens. It formed an esplanade, across which the Panathenaic Way ran diagonally, and was surrounded by administrative buildings, temples and colonnaded galleries ( stoas ) where citizens came to discuss public matters. This was also were markets were held, as well as some religious feasts, with their processions and theatre or athletics competitions.
