  • Amazing ancient Greek Temple! Built by Ictinus, the architect of Parthenon. Very well preserved. Difficult to get there. You need a one, one-and-a-half hour drive off the beaten track. But it is really worth it!!! One of the most beautiful and complete temples of Ancient Greece. Of course, the frieze is not there! Guess who have the missing sculptures... Yes, it is the British Museum.... Once again... Highly recommended!

  • After an intense bike drive of 46 km from Tholo, down at the sea, I reached today around noon the temple hoping to buy some needed water. Unfortunately it turned out there is only a ticket office and no facilities for drink or food. I was quite uncomfortable but then the sweet, blond, Greek lady of the ticket office said: "Hey, wait!" And she offered me one of her two large bottles from her small office....!!! I hope she reads or someone will tell her that I shared this wonderful action with all of you. She saved my trip and I am tremendously grateful for her spontaneous and genuine support. She is 5 stars! (Only after 21 km I had the first opportunity to buy water in Petralona) The temple I have visited twice in the past and is really worthwhile a visit. Such a pity only a few people know to find this wonderful place with its beautiful temple.

  • The hidden gem of ancient Greek temples. I have been to this site a few times over the years and very little has changed. It is an extremely beautiful site and worth going the extra mile. It is a bit out of the way and every time that I have visited, it has never been crowded.

  • This is one of my favorite sites visited in July 1995 during a road trip all over mainland Greece, the Peloponnese. I believe I enjoyed it so much because A) it was so remote and difficult to get to at the time (I'm not sure how the road has been improved since but it was pretty rough then). And B) how it was described in the Blue Guide: "The temple is attributed to Pausanias to Iktinos. Its style makes it almost certainly an earlier work than the Parthenon, and so designed c. 450-447 BC, though the execution may not have been finished before 425 BC. It is variously referred to as Temple of Bassae and Temple of Apollo Epikourious at Bassae, Vasses, Vasse and simply Bassae. I loved walking around the site, which was not crowded then and looked especially arid back then but seems to have greened up in recent years looking at more recent photos. It is also interesting to note the lack of algae or moss on the marble in '95 compared to some of the more recent photos where it looks like there have been some leaks in the 'tent'. It must really have been something for some of the Europeans of the 18th century to arrive here and see so much of the temple still standing (though it disgusts me to read about some of those nations hauling away some of the statuary and probably Corinthian embellishments---of which it was one of the earliest examples).

  • An amazing site and well worth a visit. We were in the clouds while we were there and it was raining but this just added to feeling of the place.
