Overview

The archaeological site of Vravrona is located on the east coast of the Attica Peninsula near the new Athens Airport. Less than an hour away from central Athens, this site features the ancient sanctuary of the goddess Artemis, or Diana as she was later called by the Romans, dating back to the 2nd millennium BCE. According to Greek mythology, this is the place where Iphigenia spent the last years of her life and was finally buried. Visitors can see the colonnade of the temple complex constructed in the 5th Century BCE as well as the ruins of other buildings. There is also a small museum near the sanctuary with sculptures, pottery and other finds from the period between the 12th and 4th Century BCE.
