Ancient Figaleia

Ancient Figaleia

Once a very powerful city, Figaleia was surrounded by a thick wall and with circular and rectangular towers which are still in evidence today and in relatively good condition. Roman travel writer Pausanias mentioned the existence of priests at the Temple of Artemis, writing about Dionysus Evroinomis, a gymnasium and agora, as well as statues of Hermes and of Olympic champion, Arachiona. The latter was found in the ancient agora of the town.
