The Naval Battle of Salamina took place in 480 BC. The smaller Greek fleet managed to defeat the much larger Persian fleet averting their invasion to the Peloponnese. Here the Athenians buried their dead and during excavation of this Tomb important findings were discovered like ruins of buildings. At the area there is a sculpture by Achilleas Vasiliou in memory of the fighters.

From the most special sites in Salamina are the two windmills on the hill of Agios Nikolaos, the only ones who survive today from the initial ten that existed.
