ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES
ANCIENT FILAKOPI
Filakopi was one of the most significant towns of prehistoric Aegean. Its remains are on the road from Plaka to Apollona. The archaeological excavations brought into light findings from three different historic periods that express all phases of the cycladitic civilization. There were found the remains of three towns built one over the remains of the other. The first town was built during the protocycladic period (3rd millenium BC), the second during the mesocycladic (2nd millenium BC) and the third, with influence from the minoic civilization flourished during the histerocycladic period (1500-1100 BC). Most important monuments in this archaeological site are the Kiklopio walls, the Mansion and the Sacred.

ANCIENT THEATER
Very close to village Clima were discovered the remains of an ancient theater. The date of its construction goes back to the hellenistic times.
Today the visitor can see the cavetto with seven gradins, the orchestra, the floor of the stage and other architectonic members. Although the excavations are not completed, the theater is given for some performances.
Near the theater was found the famous statue of Aphrodite. This renowned statue was discovered accidentally by a farmer in 1820. Today it is exhibited in Louver's museum.
