Of special importance is the impressive Temple of Aphaea. It is one of the most important surviving ancient Greek temples from the 5th century BC. The sculptures of the pediments unfortunately shared the fate of the Parthenon marbles, since they were removed in 1811 by foreign smugglers of antiquities and are today at the Glyptothek of Munich
