Eretria

The small, unassuming seaside town of Eretria along the coast of the Evian Gulf is the home of one of the most significant and expansive archaeological sites throughout Greece today. Though it played an important role throughout the much of the country’s ancient history, Eretria is best known for its traces of life dating back to the Neolithic period.Stone artefacts and pottery shards dating back to around 3500-3000 BC sparked interest in the site, which also revealed signs of intermittent settlement from 3000 BC until its destruction by the Romans in 87 BC. Today, a theatre, remnants of temples to Ares, Apollo and Dionysus can be seen as well as baths and fragments of walls and gates.
