Map

  On the one hand the geographic mark of the city, placed within the boundaries of Argolis fertile plain, close to road axes that link North Peloponnese to Aegean and Mediterranean Sea under the defensive stand of its high hills (Larissa 279m, Aspida 80m) on the other, underlie the main reasons that Argos was inhabited continually.
  Argos is the most important agricultural, industrial and export center of the wider Argolis region, due to systematic cultivation and industries of processing, packaging and distribution of citrus products as well as those of building material, marble, distillery and winery, processing and standardization of olive oil, pump manufacturing and package machinery etc.
  Argos, commercial center on the region from ancient times, continues to be the area’s trade center even today. Its inhabitants surpass the 30.000 people and that makes Argos the most dense of Argolis Prefecture.
