A memorial to the great King Leonidas of Sparta who stood with his 300 man against the thousands of men of the Persian’s King Xerxes army and is located at the center of the pass, where the final phase of the battle took place, as is attested by the accumulation at the foot of the hill of iron and bronze spearheads.

MONUMENT OF THESPIANS

A symbolic statue of a winged young man next to the statue of Leonidas and his fellow warriors in Thermopylae, representing the sacrifice of the 700 Thespians that stood out of

their goodwill to Leonidas saying that they would never abandon him and his men., falling on the battlefield defending the straits of Thermopylae.

HILL OF KOLONOS

The hill is known as the site of the final fall of 300 Spartans during the Battle of

Thermopylae in 480 BC. In 1939, Spyridon Marinatos, a Greek archaeologist, found a large number of Persian arrows around the hill, which changed the currently accepted identification of the site where the Greeks fell killed by Persian arrows.

THERMAL SPRINGS

According to Mythology, the goddess Athena asked Hephaestus to create this thermal baths of the Thermopylae for Hercules so he could bathe there and recover his strength after his labors, Thermal springs are generally dedicated to Hercules because they strengthened the body and he was a representative of strength.

DAMASTA MONASTERY

A women monasrery built between 13th and 15th century which took its name either from the city of Damascus where the holy icon of Virgin Mary came from or from the Greek word “damazo” which means tame, because it is said that the holy icon tames human pain and Diseases.
