Temple of Aphaia

This magnificent Doric temple lies just 2 kilometers east of Mesagros on a hill overlooking the turquoise waters of the sea. Impressively 24 of its 34 columns remain, making it one of the best preserved ancient sanctuaries in all of Greece. It was built sometime between 500-480 and its pediments contained scenes of the Greek victory in the Trojan War.
