BASSAE (Ancient sanctuary) ILIA

Temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae

This famous temple to the god of the sun and healing was built towards the middle of the 5th century B.C. in the lonely heights of the Arcadian mountains. The temple, which contains the oldest Corinthian capital that has been found to date, combines the archaic style and the serenity of the Doric style with some daring architectural structures.
