Loutraki \\ Rocks of Heraion cape


The picture was taken at Heraion cape, so called because it was the location of a small settlement dedicated to Hera. The settlement, excavated by British archaeologists in the 1930s, includes, among other, a temple to Hera, a dining-hall, and an agora. The sanctuary flourished particularly in the 9th-8th centuries BC, and the settlement itself lasted until Roman times, when it was abandoned. It was on this site that, it is believed, Medea fleeing Corinth killed her children.

This picture shows the cape and a characteristic rock standing out of the water. Although the viewer seems (in the photo) to dominate the landscape, in reality the landscape overwhelms the viewer. – A photo by Sylvain Rey
