North of Parikia, on a hill with an amazing view, lie the ruins of the sanctuary of Delian Apollo and Artemis. In its initial form, the sanctuary was quite simple consisting basically of an enclosure wall around a rock and the altar for the sacrifices. From this plateau the faithful could see the sacred island of Delos waiting for the signal to start here too, the religious ceremonies in honour of Apollo.
Later, in the classical period, a small temple was built containing a colossal statue of Artemis almost 3 meters high. Numerous votive offerings were found during the excavations that can be seen in the Archaelogical Museum of Paros.
