  • The protected UNESCO World Heritage site of Patra consists of a couple of theaters (one has recently been completely renovated), arcs and several ancient graves and basilica structures spread over a large area. Worthwhile to visit while in the region.
  • Interesting enough set of ruins on the way to a popular beach. Can be over run with tourists if a bus comes in. Very hot in summer with no shelter and limited facilities. No toilets when we were there. They are in the process of restoring some parts which is always a bit controversial. Should they rebuild the bits that are missing or leave as ruins?
