Sanctuary of Apollon Ylatis (Limassol district)

Apollon Ylatis, god of the woodland, was the protector of Curium. According to archaeological sources he was worshipped here from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. His sanctuary was an important religious centre. It consisted of Apollo’s temple, which has been partly restored, pilgrim halls, the ‘palaistra’, a bath complex, and a holy precinct.

The sanctuary is located about 2.5 kilometres west of the ancient rural city of Kourion, at Episkopi, in Limassol.
