The ancient city of Halieis
Porto Heli’s most important attraction was gradually uncovered in an archaeological excavation on the other side of the bay between the early 20th century and the 1960s. The important finds preserved in the ancient city range from a stadium and temples to clay pots. Much of it is now underwater, including the Acropolis (436 BC) with a colonnade from the temple of Apollo, and some of the ancient port walls.
If you choose one of the itineraries to Porto Heli, visit “Elli’s Tower”, a particularly well-preserved and imposing mansion.
