Iraion. Samos. Greece. The final section of the stoned paved Sacred Way, linked the ancient city (now Pythagorien) to the Sanctuary. It was graced with over 200 votive monuments along its whole length including colossal statues. Part of the ancient road has been revealed in the area now occupied by the airport unfortunately. Heraion is the main sanctuary of ancient Samos and is located on the southeast coast, 6 km kilometres from Pythagoreio.
