Half day tour to Heraclea Lyncestis, an archaeological site from Antiqity, Roman and Early Christian period originally founded by Philip II of Macedon and later important because of its location on the famous VIA IGNATIA road
The Ancient city of Heraclea Lyncestis is situated on the south side of the city of Bitola, in its immediate vicinity. The antique ruins provoked scholarly interest in the early 19th century. The emergence of this, the most important city in Antique Macedonia, is linked with the name of Philip II of Macedonia, in mid-4th century BC. Towards the middle of the 2nd century, the Romans conquered Macedonia and subdued its political power, turning it into a province and partitioning it into four regions.
Despite such a situation, Heraclea Lyncestis, which became part of the fourth region, experienced a degree of prosperity. In the first three centuries of the new era, it acquired the status of a Roman colony. This is confirmed by an inscription on a marble base dating from the 3rd century AD, which includes a reference to the name of Septimia Aurelia Heraclea.
