The ancient town of Epidaurus is one of the most important towns of Peloponnese, that belongs to the prefecture of Argolida. Its strategic position but mostly the sanctuary of Asklepion contributed to the development of this town which is now part of the cultural heritage of Greece, along with the ancient theatre and the rest of the archaeological remains found in the area.
