Troezen (Troizen, Trizina) is the legendary birthplace of Theseus, King of Athens and slayer of the Minotaur. The town's ruins, about 8 km west of Galatas, are well protected from modern bulldozers. It is somewhat off the beaten track and a visit to the (free entry) archaeological site is recommended.
