Ancient Alifeira

Alifeira is situated on the top of a steep hill over the modern village of Alifeira. This hill is also known as the Nerovitsa Castle. It was occupied by Philip in 229 BC and then became a member of the Achaic commonwealth. Today there is evidence of walls surrounding the citadel, with the foundations of the temple of Athina from the 5th century BC. A sanctuary lies in the northern part of the temple and a 14-step entrance lies in the front part. Another temple on the western side, that of Asklipies, was also discovered, dating from the second half of the 4th century BC. Six tombstones also grace the site, with one having a temple-like facade and a pediment.
