  • Such a surprise to have this magnificent marble carving of a Kouros all to ourselves.
  • This Kouros is something really breathtaking! There are only a few signs to get there, but if you're curious look for them on the road near Apollonas. This colossal unfinished statue represents the Greek god Dyonisium. If you're in Apollonas take some time to visit it, it's worth it!
  • Impressive 10 metre long statue carved from adjacent quarry and then abandoned. Very short walk from the main road.
  • If you can go there by hiking the route is awesome😉
  • Well worth stopping if you are passing by , but I wouldn't make it an event in itself
