The archaeological area covers more than 230 hectares and includes two sites: the uphill public area that contains the Agora, temples and public buildings, and the seawards residential and working area, with houses, kilns and wells. The Antiquarium rooms exhibit the rich artifacts collections found in the Ionic and Doric temples of the ancient town. The entrance to the archaeological area of the temple of Marasà and Centocamere excavations is located outside the Antiquarium. In the Marasà district, the ruins of the hugest temple in the town can be visited. The temple was erected in 480 B.C. On the hillslopes, a typical Greek Theater stands, that was however renovated in the Roman period. The House of the Lions, equipped with arcades and decoration, and the Sanctuary of Aphrodite, where 37 sacred wells with sacrificial remains and votive objects were discovered, deserve to be visited. In the Mannella area, the rests of the Sanctuary of Persephone dating to the second half of the 5th century B.C. can be seen.
Antonimina-Locri Thermae were already renowned and appreciated in ancient times. The modern Antonimina-Locri spa complex was built at the end of the 19th century and it was recently modernized and expanded. It is located in a hilly area, a few kilometers far from the Ionian Sea and Aspromonte, surrounded by a wonderful landscape and fascinating archaeological sites. The thermal waters, also called Acque sante locresi (Locri sacred waters), are classified as thermo-mineral, isotonic and slightly sulfurous, ideal for baths, muds, aerosol-therapy, nebulization, irrigations, insufflations and showers, beauty treatments, massages and hydromassages. Spring water temperature is 35°C, and waters are helpful in the treatment of female sterility, respiratory and circulation diseases. The spa resort also includes sport facilities for tennis, five-a-side football, bocce, basket, volley, riding, in addition to dancing and clubs, to provide customers with psycho-physical well-being and leisure activities.
Locri is a renowned bathing resort visited by tourists who are attracted by endless beaches, clean sea water, thermo-mineral spring bathing and several tourist accommodation facilities.
The National Museum of Epizephyrian Locris was established in 1971 near the ancient town. It keeps the archaeological collections that were housed in the Civic Museum, closed in 1969, and a large number of artifacts. The important finds have been discovered during excavations carried out in Locri from 1950s to present day mainly in the sites of Centocamere, sanctuaries in the districts of Marasà, Parapezza, Mannella, necropoles located in Lucifero and Parapezza districts and in other Locri areas. The Museum gives a complete picture of the excavations in Epizephyrian Locris, and the archaeological sites open to the public are presented. New findings from the excavation campaigns that involved important Roman Empire buildings in the heart of the ancient town, have continuously enriched the Museum’s collection. The Picture Gallery and the Museum of the Arts, that houses oil paintings, drawings and sculptures by Trifoglio, Pasquale Panetta and other national and international artists, are worth a visit.
