Ancient Agora information
Next to the archaeological museum stand the ruins of the ancient agora , the commercial centre in ancient Greek and Roman times. The foundations of stoas, shops and dwellings remain. About 100m east of the agora, the ancient theatre stages performances of ancient dramas and comedies during the Philippi Thasos Festival. The theatre is signposted from the small harbour.
A path connects the agora to the acropolis , where substantial remains of a medieval fortress stand, complete with commanding views of the coast. Carved rock steps descend to the foundations of the ancient town.
If you're exploring the eastern side of town, note the signpost for historical sites after Restaurant Alexandra. From that point, it's a 5-minute walk up a shaded trail to the lovely chapel of Agioi Apostoli, with great views over the seafront.
