Godsted Church is mostly reminiscent of a small honeycomb church with pink glaze and white lace. The exact age of the Church cannot be established, but it is believed that it dates from 1150-1300 - that is, the time of the great church buildings throughout the country. A population that probably spoke less than half a million souls built over 2,000 churches in less than two hundred years. One of these was Godsted Church.

En flot lille lyserød kalket landsbykirke, som er bygget i perioden 1150-1300. Klokken er ophængt i en lille tagkvist med luger. Tidligere har den haft en klokkestabel. Kirken ligger i den lille landsby Godsted midt mellem voldstedet Ålevad og hovedgården Ulriksdal, som begge i middelalderen tilhørte biskoppen over Fyens Stift.

A beautiful little pinkwashed village church, which was built in the period 1150-1300. The bell is hung in a small roof twig with hatches. In the past, it has had a bell stack. The church is located in the small village of Godsted between the rampart Ålevad and the main farm Ulriksdal, both of which in the Middle Ages belonged to the bishop of Fyens Stift.

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.
