In Heraion is located the temple where, according to tradition, the goddess Hera was born and raised and her sacred marriage with god Zeus took place. The temple is located 5 km from the city, on the east bank of Imvrasos River, between marshes and the sea. The Ancient Greeks (according to Herodotus) attributed its foundation to the people of Leleges and the Nymphs. In the marshes it was found the ancient statue of Hera, which was seen inside the temple and described by Pausanias.
