The most exciting thing about this place is the history of it. The sea has receded by a couple of miles so it doesn't look the same as it did when Leonidas led the Spartans here. You can climb the hill where they made their last stand, and the arrow and spear heads that were found here are in the museum in Athens. It was an adventure to get out here and apparently I missed the main battle ground by a few hundred meters.
