  • If you want to see “The Kouros” just go to Melanes and not to Apollon. It is nearer, in a beautiful scenery where you can see the Kouros. Apollon is far away and the road difficult and the beach not special, especially if there are strong northern winds, when it could be dangerous to swim there.
  • Nice hiking route through green scenery, with many historical attractions on the way
  • Historical and great gardens. Disappointed we drove in there and not so much to see.
  • Amazing work from 6-7 centuries B.C! This unfinished statue is a breathtaking huge stone directly taken from nearby queries. Once a leg has been broken, it has been left here more than 2600 years ago. "People on maps confused between the two Kouros... Melanes Kouros is the male one with trees nearby."
  • This well preserved statue is nestled among olive trees.
