The Cult of Artemis

From all over the region of Attica , the one i visited the less compared to others is the south-eastern one. Second day of the year (Which means not too many people outisde) and the proper grey weather made the perect time for a pilgrimage in one of the most important Cult places of the Ancient Hellas. The Sanctuary of Artemis at Brauron.

As you see in the link i provided above, the history of the place is very rich and indeed really long, even from pre-historic times. This time our visit was the main sanctuary and also in the excellent museum that opened recently there.  As it seems, this is the first of a big number of times that i`ll visit that area. The second will be very soon...

The pictures that follow are from the main sanctuary of Artemis and the museum.
