Discover the Small Theater of Epidavros, a hidden gem unearthed in 1971. Located at the Acropolis of the old town, it sits on the southwest side and can accommodate 2000 spectators. One of the area’s most remarkable landmarks is the Seven-Arched Mycenaean Tombs, situated at the foothill of Mountain Katarachi.
To get a closer look at the tombs, follow the street that crosses the upper side of the village and leads to the area known as “Nera.” You’ll find the Ancient Theater of Epidavros, built in the late 4th century BC on the slopes of Mountain Kinortio. With a seating capacity of 13,000, this theater is renowned for its architectural and acoustic perfection.
In the village of Ano Epidavros, you’ll discover the church of Agia Marina, constructed on the ruins of an older church dating back to the 7th-10th century. At the heart of the village stands the church of Agios Nikolaos, dedicated to the patron saint of Ancient Epidavros. It was built on the remains of the temple of the goddess Hera.
A short distance away, between the villages of Athami and Koliaki, lies the Abbey of Panagia of Kalamiou. This stunning abbey, offering breathtaking views, was constructed in the early 17th century.
