Description

Asclepieion

The ruins of Asclepieion, a temple dedicated to the god of medicine Asclepius, are located on the hill of Agia Anna, one of the most beautiful hills in Paros, facing a beautiful view of the Aegean Sea.

The temple was built during the 4th century B.C. with Parian marble, around a spring, while today only some of its architectural parts are preserved. In the same site, there have been discovered traces of another temple that was dedicated to Pythius Apollo.

You can reach the archaeological site following the regional road of Parikia, heading towards the southern part of the island.
