The Ancient Theater of Epidaurus is considered the greatest ancient Greek Τheater in terms of acoustics and aesthetics. Its capacity is 13,000 spectators and is located in the area of Epidaurus Asklepios, just 14 km from the village Lygourio. The theater, a strong element of the ancient Greek religion, was built in the late fourth century BC on the slopes of Kynortyou to entertain the patients of Asklepios.The performances were ceased during the Second World War and in the early 50 s, the theater was restored and made to fit a large number of spectators. Finally, in 1955, the Epidaurus Festival, which includes performances every summer, was launched. It is worth mentioning that some of the greatest Greek and foreign actors have had the honor of performing at the ancient theater of Epidaurus.
