''Kardamena is built on the area of the ancient city of Alasarna, which used to be an important ritual centre during the Classical Period. The ruins brought to light from archaeological excavations include a sanctuary dedicated to Apollo, a marble temple dating back to the 3rd century B.C., a theatre, some Roman constructions and the ruins of a Christian basilica temple dedicated to Agia Theotita (Saint Divinity).''
''Despite Kardamena being a largely new resort, there are still some interesting older examples of Greek and Italian architecture to be found, and the much older archaeological site just on the edge of the village. Evidence of past traditional life pops up in odd places - like the old flour mill.
The village is well served with a variety of shops and small supermarkets. There are bakery shops, butchers, pharmacy, doctors, dentists, hairdressers , internet cafes, cash machines and bank - all the essentials that anyone might need. Alongside, there are the non-essential but very pleasurable jewellers, gift shops, clothes and shoe shops and lots of others besides!''
