Hera is wife of Zeus, say no more. Hercules is their son, and Ariel daughter to Triton, and Triton is son of Poseidon. So have you seen Disney movies this is the right place!

Short drive from Pythagorion to this site. The learning center near the sea has a great relief map of the site showing how the area originally looked.

It's a very nice site, just wear a hat and bring a bottle of water with you. We liked everything there and our 8-year old just didn't want to leave :)

Obviously there is not a great amount to see at this site but I was aware of this before visiting so was not disappointed. We went on a Thomson organised trip and the guide really made the difference - the information she supplied made the bits we could see have meaning and I would recommend that if anyone is planning...

Visited this ancient area whilst in Samos and on a guided tour .The layout of the temple and grounds is very extensive and gives you a real sense of the enormous size of the area . It's difficult to imagine how the Ancient Greeks actually managed to build such large structures. There is very little shade whilst walking round so... More

This is for sure "visit worthy" though if you can go early or late in the day I suggest this as the heat can be intense! It is easiest to access by car keeping a keen eye looking for the brown with yellow print signs marking "'Sights of Interest" on Samos.

Although I did not know any word of Dutch, I had to take a Island Tour in this language. Because, they offer just in Dutch.Hopefully they had to employ local guide,she gave us very good information about the temple in English.

The Temple of Hera was at one time the second greatest temple in Greece, after the Acropolis in Athens, so it is an important historical site. However, the ruins are so incomplete that it's very difficult to understand or visualise what it was like. The iconic single column is the only large piece of building standing. Most of the site...

This is a remarkable temple that, while needing a little upkeep, is still a jewel that must be seen on a trip to Samos. It encompass a very large area that you can spend a lot of time surveying. Take your time going through everything. It's wonderful.
