Limenas, the capital of Thassos is built at the north part of the island, at the same place as the ancient town.
The historical past of the island has left till nowdays its marks upon the marble ruins and the monuments.
Among the things that someone can visit are the ancient dock walls that surround the ancient town,
(7th-5th century b.C.), the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, the Theater the old Temple of Pythiou Apollon.
On south of Ancient Agora the roman quarters and Odeum are located, and northeastwards the Diode of Theoron (Town-State Religion Representatives) that seems to be operated since 5th century to 470 approximately being very significant.
On its walls surface there were engraved marvellous bas-reliefs - Apollo with the Nymphs, the Graces holding on their raised hands proffers, wreaths and fruits, Hermes etc. - discovered on 1863 by Emm. Miller, the French traveller, and brought by him to Louver Museum in Paris.
From the Diode of Theoron, a slight diversion leads us to three successive temples: the Artemision, sacred to goddess Artemis, the Dionysion, sacred to god Dionysus, the prime mover of theatre, and the temple of Poseidon.
Significant is the Archeological Museum with a lot of exhibits.
