  • Ancient Greek Cities
  • Large cities often had a hill or high point in the town called the acropolis. This area would be used as a last area of defense if the city was attacked. 
  • Often there were temples to the gods situated around the agora and in the Acropolis. Most cities had a single god called a patron god that the city was dedicated to. They would have a special large area and temple for their patron god. 
  • The dead were not buried inside the town. Typically a cemetery was located somewhere down the road outside the town. Some towns also had a special sanctuary nearby. The sanctuary was a place dedicated to a god where the sick could go to be healed and people would go to hear prophesies about their future. 
  • Many Greek cities had a large open-air theater where plays were held during festivals. Greek theater was a popular form of entertainment. Some theaters were large enough to hold over 10,000 people. 
  • The Greeks also enjoyed sporting events and contests. They built large stadiums (called the stadion) and had gymnasiums. The hippodrome was a stadium designed to hold chariot races.
