Lion District : Michelin's recommendations
This urban quarter was built in the Hellenistic period. Facing the Sacred Lake is the impressive Terrace of the Lions, the row of famous Archaic lions sculpted in Naxian marble (only five remain, now replaced by copies). The area includes the House of Hermes (2C BC); the Institution of the Poseidoniasts; the quite well-preserved Hellenistic Lake House; and the Museum which contains a remarkable series of Archaic sculptures.
