There moored ships that transfered people to the ancient theatre and the temple of Asklepios, a famous healing centre.
Today, this village is the main tourist resort of the region with lovely port for fishing boats and yachts. The most distinguishing feature in the geography of Epidaurus is that is is surrounded by lush greenery, consisting mostly of pine trees. Peninsulas covered with pine trees that reach the sea can be seen all over the area.
The bad thing about these pine trees is that they gather a lot of annoying insects, like sphinx and bees. The inland of Epidaurus is also famous for its fruit trees, mostly lemon and orange trees. In fact, Argolida is famous for the high-quality production of citrus trees. Driving through the area, the essence of citrus trees is amazing.
