The statue of Leonidas gives one goose bumps.At his feet,on the wall, the historical Laconic phrase "molon lave" means " come and take them".
Across the street the Hill of Kolonos, where he is buried with his 300 Spartans, has a metallic plate That reminds all visitors"The Spartans are laid here faithful to their principals"
Nearby ,at the foot of the mountain ,hot sulfuric water is gushing out of the rocks for thousands of years.The name Thermopylae ( hot gate) comes from this spring!!
