Ancient Roman Columns and Bath
Feb 2021
Thera are two separated archeological cites.: Roman Baths and Byzantine Forum. Gate locked, so you have no access. There is a water drainage pipe running through the ruins- they could have diverted the pipe. It's just another ancient Roman archaeological site.

Not bad but loads of litter and poor signs
Sep 2020
Great to stop by as walking round the town but the site has been neglected somewhat. It's fenced off but now seems to be used as a rubbish dump by locals and tourists as the place was swimming in litter. Could do with a better information sign too.

Great access

This was an amazing place to visit. The greatest thing was the full access you have to the old forum. You can get up close and see it all as someone would have centuries ago

Right in the center
Aug 2020
Just few steps from the main, newly renovated central sq lies this Byzantine Forum - circled columns of once a Byzantine downtown from 5 cent.
There's not much to see, it's a rather pass by attraction but a nice one.

There are still archaeological excavations going on here, and pieces of statues and pottery are being discovered.

Byzantine Forum

There's a large fenced area near the main square that encloses the Byzantine Forum. There's not much there but a few columns and pillars. It lies in between some local businesses on one of the main streets.

Was surprised to find this after coming out of the pharmacy. Old sales bazaar gathering area. Coffee shop with monkeys and fancy pigeons next door.

Byzantine Forum

The ruins of a Byzantine market located just a short distance outside the city center square that are in relatively good shape with a few gatherings of columns still standing where the market once stood.
