Ναός της Melitele
Ναός της Melitele in Ellander just outside the main city is quite possibly the best known place set up in the goddess' name. A poplar-flanked road leads from the gate to the buildings near the sanctuary and the main temple block which is built against a mountain wall. There are gardens and outbuildings, and the grotto, sort of a greenhouse hewn from rock and roofed over with crystal.
Nenneke rules this place, honouring the policies of Duke Hereward when it suits her fancy, tending to the wounded and the sick, helping with childbirth and training new priestesses of Melitele. It was here the Ciri began her instruction under the watchful eye of the priestess. Later, her studies were overseen by Γιενέφερ.

The Ναός της Melitele featured in many επεισόδια, beginning in the eight episode, "Rozdroże" (Crossroads) and most notably in "Świątynia Melitele" (Ναός της Melitele). Unlike the books, the temple was burned to the ground and all the priestesses within slain.
Στο παιχνίδι The Witcher[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]
In the game, there is a shrine to Melitele in the swamp as well as an altar to the goddess inside the hospital in the Συνοικία του Ναού. There is also a statue similar to those at the shrine and hospital outside the herbalist's house in the Trade Quarter.
