Archaeological Site of Kolona - Overview
The prehistoric town (2500-1600 B.C.): During the Early Bronze Age (Protohelladic II) a developed walled settlement grew up on the site. Its most remarkable building is the so-called White House, a long two-storey construction, the walls of which were covered with white plaster. The town continued to flourish during the Middle Helladic and Early Mycenaean periods (2000-1600 B.C.).
The temple of Apollo (620-610 B.C.)
The Late Roman Wall of the Acropolis
An important town which flourished during much of the Bronze Age (2500-1600 B.C.). In archaic times a temple of Apollo was erected on the site. The one remaining column that stands to date has given the area its name.
