All,

A thing that's slowly driving me crazy is my inability to locate the remains of The Temple of Apollo. The only sign I have spotted so far is on the right side of the road, coming from Acharavi, at the traffic lights. I am obviously missing a vital clue here. Can someone tell me where it is, or post the coordinates so I can enter them in google maps?

Thanks!

Jurjen

Wake up in a studio with seaview,
go downstairs to a bar with seaview,
down a few more steps to the beach....
yep, seaview again :-)

Hi Jurjen, now you've got me thinking as well. Like you I've seen the sign at the cross roads, but not seen anything further into Roda.
I'll have an ask round when I'm that way again.

We did find it once. It is down near the sea. Walk through Roda and towards Acharavi, and it is on the right. When we were there it was fenced off with netting and overgrown but a path goes along one side.
Good Luck!

Visited this the other year, after years of saying we must find it and sadly it was a bit of an anti-climax unless you are heavily into ancient Greek ruins.

Still, where exactly is it? I am willing to risk the disappointment.

EDIT: Found it! Somewhere else we got a clue for "Roda Inn''.

It is on the seafront after Big Ben pub and tourist shop before the big hotel Roda Inn on the right hand side heading Acharavi way.

Yes Jurjen, go through the gates (if they are open) and the site is on the right somewhere.

Okay, found it and yes, a disappointment. Gates at the street where open but the ones at the site itself weren't. The site was completely overgrown, just a tiny part of a toppled column was recognizable above the grass. Oh well, mystery solved :-)
