Assos Acropolis

The Acropolis of Assos, with it's temple of Athena is the highlight of Assos. It's a majestic temple at the hilltop, although sadly much of it has disintegrated. The friezes are in museums all over the world, including the Louvre; but the temple stands in part with amazing views, including that of Lesvos across the sea.

The Byzantines had fortified the hilltop, and some of the towers, walls and a large cistern remain. The temple area has now been convered to a paid museum. At 8 TL, it's worth it.
