Located on the fertile Argolid plain of the east Peloponnese in Greece and blessed with a mild climate and natural springs, the sanctuary of Asclepius at Epidavros was an important sacred centre in both ancient Greek and Roman times.

Epidavros theatre was constructed in the late 4th century BC to host religious ceremonial events in honor of god Asclepius, whose healing centre was located few steps away. Famous for its symmetry and the incredible acoustics, this classical theatre is surrounded by lush greenery and gives nice view to the valley below. The view, aesthetics, and acoustics of the theater are breathtaking.

The view from the theatron (the seating area) is spectacular the way the sweeping architectural geometry merges with the beautiful hilly landscape beyond the scene
Runners can also Experience theatre as the ancient Greeks did in one of the greatest masterpieces of Greek architecture, the Theatre of Epidavros.

For more than forty years, the Epidavros Festival, part of the Greek Festival, has re-created ancient Greek classics at the beautiful and acoustically tremendous theatre in Epidavros.
