The Church of Santa Maria – the first church was built in 1044 on the site of the Roman temple of Saturn. This was destroyed in the earthquake of 1231, however was soon rebuilt and was enlarged over the years. In November 1943 it was destroyed during the bombing of Atina. This is the entrance to the Cemetery.
