In ancient Greek times, an "agora" was a meeting place, and Athens boasts the best-preserved example: the Ancient Agora. Alongside the remnants of spaces that would have been used for debate are religious structures, the most notable being the well-kept Temple of Hephaestus. Athens is also home to a Roman Agora, where the central market was held during the Roman era. Romans would have entered through the grand Gate of Athena Archegetis. Despite the damage that it has suffered over the centuries, the now-stunted columns that mark its boundaries give a sense of the Roman Agora’s one-time importance. Look out for the decorated frieze of the Tower of the Winds, a marble tower built by the astronomer Andronicus of Cyrrhus, which was used as a sundial and weathervane. Photo by user32212 from Pixabay
