"Asklepieion" or "Heroon of Demosthenes".

Next time there I must take my mask...

The site was a sacred asylum for fugitives and castaways.
It is surrounded by tall walls without any openings. At the precinct, you can see the temple -which is simple, without many wall-paintings- family tombs and even try special sweets-offering from the monastery.
It was built in the 18th century on a green slope with an amazing view to the sea (Monastiri beach).
In front of it you can see a little chapel (Agioi Anargyroi) and a famous spring with healing properties.

The Love Bay is a very beautiful beach with pebbles and sand, where you can swim and relax under the shadow of the pine trees.
Love bay, a very popular little bay. Although it does get very busy and water front space is limited. Pine trees also offer some relief from the sun when needed. Very clear water here.
It is considered to be the most romantic place of the island, due to its official name...
So, it must not only be a place for swimming...
