          Photos of Epidaurus

There are many architectural monuments in the area such as the Temple of Apollo Maleata (where the faithful washed their hands and made their first sacrifice), the Tholon (a place of worship), the Avaton (where patients would spend the night seeing visions of Asklepeios in their dreams and thus become cured). Outside the enclosure stood the dwellings of the priests, the doctors, a gymnasium, baths etc.
On a hillside within the sanctuary, lies the theatre of Epidaurus built in around 3rd c. BC by Polykleitos the Younger. It is the best preserved of all the ancient theatres in Greece, with capacity of 14.000 seats and possesses incomparable acoustics.
