The name of this tourist village means "beautiful view" and from its central square you can go down to the beaches. Kallithea is a very extensive seaside resort and particularly lively in the evenings, but not really picturesque. It also owes its fame to the discovery of the ruins of the temple of Amun-Zeus, one of the most important sanctuaries dedicated to the Egyptian god. Probably built in the 4th century BC, this Doric temple had six columns in width and eleven columns in length. A stone altar, dating from the 5th century BC, was found in front of the temple. To the south-east, a sanctuary dedicated to Dionysus and the Nymphs, dating from the 8th century BC, housed a shrine dedicated to Demeter and Apollo.
