Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia

The sanctuary of Athena Pronaia was visited by pilgrims heading for the sanctuary of Apollo, as was the other nearby sanctuary dedicated to the mother goddess Gaia, a rare example of a circular temple (tholos). Today, little remains of either of the sanctuaries consecrated to the two goddesses. Archaeologists have nonetheless succeeded in reconstructing the entire base of the tholos (4C BC).
