Near the Lake Vouliagmeni and after the verdulous village  Perahora on the Hereo cape you will find a temple dedicated to the godess Hera, first built in 800BC. Since there are no traces of the temple from that era we find remainings of the tempe dated from the 6th centuryBC moving a little bit to the east. The temple is of Dorian order and during the 4th century BC eight pillars were added and a roof for the protection of the priests and the sa-cred fire since the location had strong winds. Remainings of a restaurant facility was found that served the pili-grims and 200 copper bottles under the location which was believed to be a lake and gatheres the rain water. Visit the ancient city Isthmia in which the second biggest athletic fiest was taking place after the Olympics. The fiests were dedicated and honoured the god Poseidon and were programmed every two years. The fiests included run-ning, wrestling, pentathlum, pagratium, horse-racing, chariot-racing as well as competitions for orators, musicians and artists. Isthmia was a very politically important location. We have records that say the Greeks gathered several times to decide on crushial issues such as the invasion of the Persians in 479BC, the congress Fillipos the king of Northern Greece Makedonia called. You will find the full history of Isthmia in the Archeological Museum in which findings of the temple of Hera are exhibited and the cities Kehreon and Rahis. Also visit the ancient city Pe-reon inhabited round 750BC, the Roman villa on the Katounistra hill dated from 50BC which had a spa complex. Visit the numerous churches and the monasteries.
