Ancient Theater - Ancient Thera

One of the most imposing buildings in the ancient city, from the Hellenistic - Roman period, with beautiful views of the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. Situated close to the Agora, it was also used as a parliament. It is estimated that it was partially constructed in the 2nd century BC on the site of a preexisting simpler construction that was used for gatherings. Six staircases in a radial configuration divided the hollow into five sections with a total capacity of 1,500 people. In the 1st century AD, a Roman-style scene building was constructed, its proscenium decorated with statues of the imperial family.
