Megaron temple of Domu de orgia

Located at an altitude of over 1000 meters, the temple is of the megaron style and is the most significant of its kind on the island. The structure is enclosed by an elliptical sacred enclosure and is constructed from schist blocks. The rectangular temple measures approximately 10 meters by 20 meters and comprises two rooms that are preceded by an in-antis vestibule.

Excavations have revealed several bronze statuettes and have enabled the complex to be dated to the second half of the 2nd millennium BC, with evidence of use continuing through the Roman era.
