Photo Spot Details

The archaeological site contains three Dorian temples (Hera, Athene and Poseidon, between 540 – 450 before Christ). Furthermore, you can visit a little amphitheater. In my opinion, the site shines most at dusk because the sun goes down at the right position behind the temples. Despite that, the relics are beautiful illuminated at night. As always, I suggest carrying a tripod for low light conditions.
