The Archaeological Site of Emporios

The archaeological site of Emporios is located on the steep slopes of the hill of Prophet Elias. Built by the first Ionians in the 8th century BC, its relics still stand proudly in the center of the Acropolis facing the East. The temple of the goddess Athena was built on top while below the Acropolis there were various kinds of residence. There were simple dwellings consisted of a single room and some others more impressive which belonged to wealthier residents.
The fairly uphill path to the archaeological site passes through the ruins of the ancient settlement resulting in the Acropolis and the Temple of Athena and ensures great views of Emporios harbour and the beach of Komi.
