The Shrine of Virbius was the birthplace of the Green. He was said to have first risen from the barren earth there on the island of Crete on the 25th of December. In the time since, a temple was built, and it was tended by twelve maidens.

The temple, made of unroofed stones, was nestled upon the mountain's shoulders. Its sacred pillars were arranged at the edge of a wide ring. They girded a bowl-shaped hollow where a large altar jutted from the centre. Behind the temple was a sacred grove where, on certain nights of the year, the Green himself could be glimpsed.

The Shrine of Virbius was eventually destroyed by the Scale, and all the maidens were slain.
