Stoa Of Attalos


The Stoa Of Attalos

In the ruins of the Greek Agora – stands the very impressive reconstructed Stoa Of Attalos.

Serving a dual purpose as a museum of the ancient Greek Agora or marketplace- the Stoa can be thought of as a precursor to the modern day shopping mall.

Built by Attalos II, it was very faithfully reconstructed in the 1950’s. Makes it very easy to imagine the daily life of ancient Athenians and hear their voices resonating in this hall.
