This was such a cool site to see. It’s a close walking distance from Dolce Attica Riviera and is beer well kept. So much history to see and learn about here as well as the museum close by.

The museum consists of two parts, an archaeological museum containing the artifacts found at the site and the partially restored ruins of the Temple of Artemis Vavrounia (or Barounia). Visit the museum first to gain an understanding of the Artemis cult and its importance to women. There are many lovely statues of young children and girls, wonderfully intact pottery items, and reliefs of Artemis and different wildlife. The site itself sits surrounded by wetlands. It includes the partially restored temple with its soaring columns, an ancient bridge that was part of the original road to Athens, a sping and an abundance of quiet. Certainly a difference from many of the more visited ancient sites in Greece. It was possible to sit here and quietly contemplate what must have drawn the ancients to consider this site holy. We noticed many pretty flowers blooming and there were also signboards on the walk in describing the wildlife that can be found in the wetlands. One of the best ruins in all of Greece that appears to be overlooked by the crowds.

This site has it all... grounds to walk, a semi-standing temple that gives visitors a sense of scale and place, a well-organized and well-signed museum and easy parking. The only hard part is finding the place. There is no sign on the road to explain that entry to the Temple sight is through the archaeological museum for which there are some faded signs; it's well worth the small struggle to get there.

There are not too many tourists,we went there around 9.30 am.
It is very easy to walk there from Dolce Attica Riviera hotel,only an20 min walk through the Wet Lands.It was a beautiful experience,we had the place almost for ourselves which for me was great,less people, more chances to actually feel the energy which surrounds the Temple...Very nice and peaceful ..
