Socrate's Prison

Controversy surrounds the precise location of Socrates’ prison after he was condemned to death; local tradition places the prison on Apostolou Pavlou, a pedestrian street near Thisson

This rock cave, its entrance covered with iron bars, is believed by many to be where Socrates spent his final hours before drinking the fatal poison.

Other nearby caves make the same claim, the main rival being located at the bottom of the hill below the monument of Philopappos, opposite the church of Ag. Dimitrios 'the Bombardier'.
