the Temple of Apollo Epicurius: Temple d'Apol·lo Epicuri, Bassae

Temple d'Apol·lo Epicuri, Bassae

This temple is located at 1100 m above the sea level in a remote valley SE of Olympia. It seems it was rediscovered in the XVIIIth century thanks in part to the description provided by Pausanias, the greek traveller and geographer of the 2nd century AD.
