Church of Santa Eulalia de la Lloraza is a Romanesque-style church in the municipality of Villaviciosa. The origins of the church are not clear, although the origin of the church may be the endowment by a leper who traveled the Camino de Santiago route which passed through the area. The church may have been funded initially by an offering of Queen Berengaria of Castile, wife of King Alfonso IX of León.
The present church dates from the thirteenth century, having undergone numerous renovations after it was damaged by arson in the Spanish Civil War. The church was restored in 1950 by Luis Menéndez Pidal y Alvarez.
The church has a nave with a squared apse. The ensemble seen today has elements of several epochs, as it has since undergone repairs and refurbishments.
The two entrances of the building are from the early days of construction, featuring richly Romanesque decorations.References:
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.
