Tanagra — A settlement in Central Greece
Tanagra is a town and a municipality north of Athens in Boeotia, Greece. In antiquity, it was noted for a type of mass-produced, mold-cast and fired Greek terracotta figurines.

Tanagra's alternative name was Poimandria, after its founder Poimandros, who took part in the Trojan campaign.

It was the site of two Battles of Tanagra, in 457 BC and 426 BC. The Boeotian League under Tanagra led forth "the Boeotians" against the Athenian invaders at Oenophyta, 62 days after the battle of Tanagra.
