The sanctuary of Asclepius

At the location Agia Anna, on the road to Aliki, you will find the sanctuaries of Pythian Apollo and Asclepius. Only the foundations of the sanctuary of Pythian Apollo are preserved today. The sanctuary of Asclepius was built in the 4th century BC near a spring, which was necessary for the worship rites.

It is composed of a building with an altar situated in the center, two semicircular platforms and two marble cisterns. The whole kouros that is housed today at the Louvre Museum and many more marble votive offerings originate from this site.
