Spectacular location with stunning views of the Peloponese. Low level outline of the temple and site. Some interpretation boards but would love to have seen a 3D model. Quiet and peaceful place.

Free access in a beautiful location. Not so much to see above the ground but you get a real sense of what this large site would have been like when it was in use. You also get great views out to other islands.

Not much there but the bike ride to get there is fantastic passing small chapels. Nothing to stop you walking anywhere you wish to look at all the small ruins. Remember you are walking in and on Historyu
