The Ancient Agora of Athens is considered by all, locals and tourists, to be a small oasis in the center of the city. Strolling in the largest archaeological park of Athens, in the shade of tall oaks, planes, and olives, we hardly realize how much effort was devoted to landscaping the site in the early 1950s. That was a major undertaking, one comparable to the reconstruction of the Stoa of Attalos itself. One only needs to see before-and-after photos in order to grasp the magnitude of this achievement.
