Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus

epidaurus1 epidaurus12
Among the greatest monuments of Greek Antiquity and Hellenic architecture, the theatre at the Asklepieion of Epidaurus is considered as the finest, most well-preserved and most reputed of its kind. Remarkably adapted to the landscape, the theatre combines elegance and symmetrical proportions with exceptional acoustics. The acoustic properties have shown to be the result of an advanced design: the rows of limestone seats filter out low-frequency sounds, such as the murmur of the crowd, and amplify high-frequency sounds from the stage.
