  • I really loved the place! You wonder around amongst the olive trees listening to the cicadas and can imagine how it would have been in the ancient times. There is even a drinking fountain and benches....  more »
  • When in Limenas, I always have an explore of the Ancient Agora, next to the Archeological Museum, and just back from the old harbour. Unfettered access means you can let your imagination run wild...  more »
  • A great objective for both tourists and specialists. With impressive dimensions, it is located right in the center of Limenas, near the marina. Access is via several points, but in the ones near the port a number of steps must be lowered, a testimony of the orogenic movements suffered by the island's soil over the centuries. Paved roads, access gates, temple ruins, stone thresholds, blunted away by the footsteps of thousands of ancient passers-by, stones cut with unexplained holes for today, a Conservatory for music, drainage channels (carved in stone) of rain water, columns and stone arrangements whose functionality we can not guess, all this Agora offers us. Some stones ... But these stones give us an image, alive today, of the complexity and amplitude of the life of those who inhabited the island in antiquity. Some primitives who were carving their lives for eternity... Un obiectiv minunat, atât pentru turiști, cât și pentru specialiști. Cu dimensiuni impresionante, este amplasat chiar în centrul capitalei Limenas, lângă portul marina. Accesul se face prin mai multe puncte, dar în cele aflate lângă port trebuie coborâte un număr de trepte, mărturie a mișcărilor orogenice suferite de solul insulei în decursul veacurilor. Drumuri pavate, porți de acces, ruine de temple, praguri din piatră, tocite de pașii miilor de trecători antici, pietre cioplite cu găuri inexplicabile pentru cei de azi, un Conservator pentru muzică, canale de drenaj (cioplite și acestea în piatră) a apei pluviale, coloane și aranjamente din piatră a căror funcționalitate nu o putem ghici, de toate ne oferă această Agora. Niște pietre... Dar pietrele acestea ne oferă o imagine, vie și astăzi, a complexității și amplitudinii vieții celor care populau insula în antichitate. Niște primitivi care își ciopleau viața întru eternitate...
  • It is a very nice place to take a break from the hustle in the town and relax, meditate and reflect upon the ancient relics of the old town
