The old olive mill
The temple of the Assumption of the Holly-Mother
One of the most interesting remainings of ancient Polyrinia is the impressive Andrianos' aqueduct, consisted of two conductors dud in the rocks, with a width of 1,35 m and height of 2,3 m, that ended up into two marble fountains. |
The conductors crossed underground the hill of Polyrinia and had some secret exits in case of siege.
Opposite the municipality's office there are the remainings of the old olive mill.
The olive mill was built using stones from the Andrianos aqueduct. Two of its pillars where taken from ancient Polyrinia, the one from the palace and the other from the temple of Artemis.
Inside the village of Polyrinia there is the temple of the Assumption of the Holly-Mother.
The temple is built inside a rock and it contains some valuable icons. During the Turkish occupation it served as a secret school for the Greek children.
One of the most wonderful findings is a sepulchral column representing the lord of the city Sosamenos and his young daughter Tiro, with an elegy about the beauty and the virtues of the deceased daughter.
