A fort as a fort is nothing extraordinary when it comes to architecture. An ordinary military building. I just don't know where the pink color comes from ... but the surroundings of the fort are wonderful. Ocean, green, paths. You can relax in its shade quite nicely.

It is a pity that it is closed to the public

It was closed, when we read that there would be every day. Walking around the surroundings was worth it.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
