Hadrian’s Library information
Lonely Planet review
To the north of the Roman Agora is this vast 2nd-century-AD library, the largest structure erected by Hadrian. It included a cloistered courtyard bordered by 100 columns and there was a pool in the centre. As well as books, the building housed music and lecture rooms and a theatre. Last admission is 30 minutes before closing.
