Archeological site, Dimitriada

Lying just 1.5 km north of Volos, Dimitriada was founded in 294 BC by the King of the Macedonians Dimitrius Poliorkitis and named after him.

The remains of a palace complex can still be seen in what was the center of the city, on a hill in the eastern part of the site. The sacred agora was located south of the palace, whose center boasted a temple dedicated to Iolkian Artemis. There’s also evidence of the ancient theatre of Dimitriada not far from the site. Many archeological written steles were found in towers attached to the ancient walls of the city, and have been moved to the Archeological Museum of Volos.
