Björnstorp's annual Christmas market is an event to look forward to every year! We never miss it.

The Christmas market was disappointing, there were too many people, too few sales to really look like it was Christmas, and no 'real' food you could buy for lunch, despite the cafe and food stalls...

Unjustified entry fee of SEK 60. Didn't buy anything at the Christmas market, there were few things that attracted and quite commercial

As usual, a nice Christmas market with a good mix on offer

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.
