Archaic Sanctuary of Klopedi



The sanctuary of Klopedi is a representative example of the Aeolian, Archaic architecture and one of the most important archaeological sites in Lesvos. It was built in the 6th century BC (the oldest surviving in Lesvos) and is associated with a thriving period of the island. 

The findings in the ruins of the two temples which constituted the sanctuary reveal that it was dedicated to Napaeos Appolon, the god of light and music.
