Excavations made by K. Kourouniotis and the British School in the early 20th century, unearthed remnants of an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo in Kato Fana. It is an impressive temple of the 9th century BC who suffered severe damage in the Christian times, and on its place was built a basilica.
From exhibits that were found in the region, it becomes obvious that the sanctuary was a very important center of worship in antiquity. This can easily be noticed by the Egyptian scarabs that were discovered next to the altar.
Today, in the archaeological site you will find relics of the temple and the basilica. The small church of Agioi Theodoroi (“St. Theodore”) is built on the same site.
