In response to Mr Lucas Nugia's comment Good morning sir, sorry for your feelings during your visit to the cemetery. It would have been wise to specify in your comment that you came at night, wearing gloves with a flashlight. The cemetery being closed at this time, it was quite normal for me to wonder when you came. You can come back during opening hours, we will be delighted to welcome you. Best regards The conservative

Place of great beauty and tranquility. The cemetery is very well maintained. We were welcomed by the curator who gave us lots of information with great kindness. Thank you to the staff for maintaining this cemetery so well by paying tribute to all those who died.

I go to this cemetery regularly. To walk, disconnect and enjoy the tranquility. Recently there is a curator. If the idea is good to inform or accompany families or visitors, I would have appreciated that he did not speak to me with suspicion and avoid projecting his a priori and perception on my visit. The place is beautiful. Well maintained. Pleasant. But the disastrous reception. I refuse to go back.

There is the shock of the immensity of this cemetery. Nearly 19,000 graves .... And also the serenity of this perfectly maintained place. A very beautiful place of peace but it is a peace arrived too late for all those there ..

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.
