It is a... pyramid, although a small one (4th century BC). You can find it if you go to the village Elliniko, near Argos.
It is said that it was rather a grave or a small fort which was protecting the road to Arcadia (the nearby prefecture).
It is one of the biggest ancient theaters, 20.000 people could watch the performances in antiquity! It surely was the largest in ancient Greece.
The ruins of the theater put into the shade the roman baths and the conservatoire (4th century, 100 m far from the theater).
You can also visit the Archaeological Museum of the city.
This church is in the middle of the central square of the city, around it there are only-pedestrian streets, nice shops and bars.
It is dedicated to the memory of bishop Petros, the patron saint of Argos, who lived in the 9th century.
This nice place is 5 km SW of Argos. There is running water, which comes under the foundation of the church you see, Zoodohos Pigi (I was baptised there!).
You can also visit the historical caves, Greek soldiers were using them as a shelter during the war for independence against the Turks (1821 and so on)...
Favorite thing: It is located on the top of a hill (280 m), from where you have the best view of the city. There was an acropolis, but it was... displaced by these mediaeval walls. On other slopes of the same hill, you can visit two nice monasteries.
Favorite thing: Argos, as you can see it from Larisa castle. The plain is too fertile, basicly there are orange trees. You can notice, at the background, next to the sea, Nafplio - which is the capital of the prefecture, Nomos Argolidos. It is just 12 km far away.
The fecund land of the large region around Argos offers thousands tons of oranges, which basicly are exported.
These trees belong to me... Do you want to send you some?
