Church of Saints Iasson and Sossipatros is dedicated to the two Saints Iasson and Sosipatros, both Paul's disciples, who spread the Christianity on Corfu island.This church was constructed in the 11th century on the ruins of a monastery and it is one of the few examples of Byzantine architecture left standing.
Stones collected from abandoned ancient buildings were used in its construction and expert builders were called in from Attica. Externally it is characterized by the disposition of red bricks around doors and windows in rows that create a decoration. Inside there are the graves of the two Saints, their icons realized in the XVII century by E. Tsanes of the Cretan School and the fresco of St Arsenio. From 1960 to 1980 many restoration works of both frescoes and icons were made.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.
