Peloponissos, Ancient Epidavros

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Epidavros (Epidaurus) is a historic town in the prefecture of Argolida in the eastern side. It is situated at the foothills of Arachnaio, and Top Tithio, where according to mythology, Asclepios was born, where the cult started there for the first time in the 6th century. Its strategic location, but mainly the Asklipion, turned so that the city experienced unprecedented growth. The locals mostly occupied with shipping. The first settlement of the prehistoric period is found 12 km from the town of Old Epidavros.
