The Fortress of Larissa, one of the most important monuments of Argos, designated a Byzantine monument since 1922, is currently being restored, after falling into disarray from extensive excavations that began in the middle of the 20th century.
The fortress, named after the nymph Larissa, daughter of the mythical Pelasgus, is situated at the top of Fortress Hill, at an elevation of 287 meters, west of the city.
Although not an organised archaeological site, the citadel attracts a large number of visitors annually.
That, however, is about to change, as the 25th Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities aims to reorganise the Fortress as an "archaeological site and monument".
The interventions have been designed so as to enable the site to remain open to visitors.
