Nice church, there is nothing particularly remarkable about the place - apart from the view. Graver has not yet been on a communication course !! ? ?

A beautiful whitewashed church, which stands high in the countryside and can be seen from afar. The oldest parts ship and choir were built around the year 1150 in Romanesque style. Like most medieval churches, the church is characterized by the changing styles, 1250-1500 Gothic, to which tower, sacristy, porch were added (1480), 1500-1650 Renaissance and 1650-1750 Baroque.

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.
