A very beautiful church

The church made famous by Van Gogh. Fairly typical of its period, it's rather pretty but no more so than many other churches. However, the painting changes everything. Unfortunately, it's not in the best condition. From the interior, the church tower looks to have been shored up to strengthen it.

Beautiful window glases and decoration. Big church in small vilage.

Worth the visit. You can stand at a spot where Van gogh was standing when he painted the church and wonder how he would have felt if his paintings would be loved by billions of people around the globe.

Beautiful Church, a quiet space to pray as it's open during the day. In a picturesque area

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.
