Archaeological Site of Elea - Overview

  The fortified settlement of the Late Classical and the Hellenistic periods, located at Paramythia, on the slopes of Mt. Corilas, is identified with the ancient city of Elea. The city was enclosed by a strong polygonal wall, 1550 m. long, with the main monumental gate on the east side. The remains, revealed so far by the excavations, belong mainly to public buildings, such as stoas, a small temple and the Hellenistic theatre, which delineated the area of the city’s agora.
