Beautiful Romanesque church, it had a sign on the door with the hours of guided tours (I understand that the church is also open hours) was from 10-2 and I think from 7-9 pm, a pity not having taken a photo to share

I do not understand people who want to find everything digitized, at the click of a button. The navigator takes you to the parking lot without problems. In the interpretation center before arriving at the monuments they explain the visiting regime. If you go in a hurry or you don't have patience in this wonderful corner where time has stopped, you have a problem. The wonderful guide. Then you hear comments like "there's not much to see, just stones". Unbelievable ignorance. I recommend reading something from home or having patience to access the guided tour Two beautiful monuments that tell us about history if we know how to listen.

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.
