Näsby estate belonged to Uppsala archbishop in 1300s and in 1520s it was donated to Kristina Nilsdotter (Gyllenstierna). In 1571 it was acquired by Gustav Axelsson Baner. Originally built in the 1660s and designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder, the current Näsby Castle is located in the picturesque and natural setting of Näsbyviken. The castle was burned to the ground in 1897, but was rebuilt according to the original design on the initiative of Carl Robert Lamm and Dora Lamm who moved into the castle in 1905. Parts of the old castle garden still exist and are well preserved. Today Näsby is a conference center with a hotel and restaurant.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.
