Argos lies four miles distance from the Argolic gulf, at the north eastern Peloponnese. It is the second oldest city after Sikyon and for centuries it was the most important one. Argos became dependant to the nearby city of Mycenae (six miles distance), under the descendants of Pelops.
In the twelve century, under Orestes, the son of Agamemnon, Argos became again the capital of Argolis.
In the eleventh century, Argos fell to the Dorians and their leader Temenos, made it the base of his operations.
At 750 BC, under the tyrant Pheidon, Argos became the most important city of Peloponnese.

Ancient Epidaure :

  It’s a world famous archaeological site , in a green landscape . 33 kms away from Nea Kios , it belongs to the municipality of Lygourio .
The archaeological site is consisted of :
The theatre : The miracle of Epidaure – as it was called – is situated at the slope of Kynourio mountain , in the place of worship , and it’s the best conserved ancient theatre . Built in the 4th century B.C. – according to Pausanias – by the architect and sculptor Poliklitos from Argos , even though there are scientists that support that it was constructed at the beginning of the 3rd century , so it couldn’t belong to Poliklitos. With a circle orchestra , thimeli and 12 rows of 34 seats , could accept 6.000 spectators . During the Hellenistic years , it was added the upper zone of rows , doubling the capacity of the theatre . Nowadays , even though it’s almost not saved anything from the scene with the Ionian rhythm columns , the excellent acoustics still exist . The sound goes clear up to the highest rows , due to the wonderful adjustment of the theatre to the scenery ( as it’s built on the slope , it operates as a resonator ) . The theatre , “a special sight” according to Pausanias , is a place of performances of ancient drama during the summer.For that it is used a non permanent scene , made of light materials .
The Asklipios sanctuary : In a pine tree area , next to the ancient port of Epidaure , were discovered ruins of the most important sanctuary of Asklipios, God of health . That sanctuary was in a big prosperity at the end of the 5th and the 4th century B.C. At the place around there are many archaeological monuments , like the temple of Apollon Maleata – 4th century B.C – right behind the theatre , where the worshippers of the Asklipios’sanctuary should offer their first sacrifice .The Gymnasium reminds the arena of Olympia , with the big indoor yard , where the small conservatory was constructed . A little further , there are ruins of Kotios gallery and a little arena .
Small theatre : Right after the arena starts the original part of the sanctuary , where you have to pay attention at the ruins of Themidas’temple , the foundations of Artemis’ temple.
