Epidauros

Epidauros is 50 minute drive from the resort. The ancient theatre of Epidaurus is part of Unesco World Heritage. It is regarded as the best preserved ancient theatre in Greece in terms of its perfect acoustics, its unique architecture and harmonious proportions. It was constructed in the late 4th century BC by Popykleitos, on the side of a mountain, overlooking the sanctuary of Asklepios. It is a superb example of classical theater with an orchestra and a circular area between the seats and the stage. The actors can be perfectly heard by all 15.000 spectators, as you can even hear the sound of a pin dropping. For centuries the monument remained covered by trees until the year 1881. Since 1955 the famous Epidaurus festival, is held every summer with famous ancient dramas or modern plays. Over the years, the festival has hosted both Greek and foreign artists. Tickets can be easily booked online.
