Bassai

1 Comment

Well I finally got to see Bassai, which has a temple of Apollo. This is an unusual temple in the fact that it has a side door. This was so worth the trip. The site has recently been given world heritage status which means there is restoration and conservation going on, plus the temple is covered in what looks like a very large white circus tent. The temple is amazing, I never imagined it would be so big or so impressive. The drive there is beatiful too. This afternoon is going to be spent getting ready for the next stage of our journey down to Pylos where we plan to nose around some castles and the Nestor’s palace. We are staying there a couple of nights before heading to Sparta.
