Temple of Vulcan (Hefestos)

Valley of the Temples

On the other side of the valley is the last spur of the hill, commanded by the remains of the Temple of Vulcan.

It is a Doric-style building from the 5th century BC, with an archaic sacellumm enclosed into a Classic-era cella.

The sacellum measures 13.25 x 6.50 meters; its decoration, dating to c. 560-550 BC, has been recently reconstructed.

The classic temple, a Doric perypteros, measured 43 x 20.85 meters, rising mounted on a four-step krepidoma and having 6 x 13 columns; it dates to around 430 BC.
