A huge archeological space, worth visiting, especially for that huge column. Note that you probably should visit the museum in Vathi to see the rest of the scalptures.

It is not the best guided site. It is not the best renovated. However, when you try to imagine what the temples would have looked like in “those days” you get really impressed. If you have the slightest interest in history this is a “need...More
