An ancient Greek healing temple has been excavated by archaeologists, who recovered huge statues and were able to reconstruct the architecture at the site. The acropolis at the Feneos site in the eastern foothills sits at an altitude of 750m.

The asclepion (a healing temple sacred to the god Asclepius) was first discovered in 1958 and between 2007 and 2014, archaeologists gradually surveyed and documented the site. In September this year, the Corinth Archaeological Service completed the first excavation programme, and the findings were announced by the Greek Culture Ministry.
