Agora

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This ancient Roman Forum lies right in the heart of Thessaloniki. This Agora was built by the Romans in the late 1st century A.D., and along with the Galerian Palace Complex it was the center of political and public life in Thessaloniki. It was a large open area surrounded by buildings of various functions. The Forum was beautifully decorated with arches, cloisters and fountains. Unfortunately, most of the decoration have been destroyed throughout the centuries.
