Κourion Ancient Amphitheater, Cyprus

From series “Ancient Amphitheaters and Arenas, That Are Still Operational”
Year: 2nd century BC.

One of the most beautiful and interesting for visiting amphitheatres is located in Kourion. It will amaze travellers with its majestic appearance, the beauty of the preserved antique mosaics and the magnificent panoramic view that opens from spectators’ seats. The antique landmark is very popular with travellers. For them, part of the amphitheater has been covered with galleries that prevent penetration of the rays of the hot sun.

Κourion Ancient Amphitheater, Cyprus The Amphitheater in Kourion was built by the ancient Greeks in the 2nd century BC and was later rebuilt several times by the ancient Romans. This is one of the oldest arenas in the world, preserved until our days. As the old town of Kourion was abandoned in the Middle Ages, researchers discovered the amphitheater relatively recently, only in mid-20th century. The arena was found in archaeological excavations. Archaeologists have discovered fragments of old villas and other ancient buildings in the immediate vicinity.

After the last reconstruction, the theater was completed with a beautiful lighting system. On its stage, interesting performances of the plays of Euripides, Sophocles and Aristophanes are staged. The theater is also used as a venue for music concerts. The Amphitheater of Kourion is not as big and can accommodate only 3500 spectators. Today, it is recommended to purchase tickets to the ancient theater in advance. Next - Aspendos Amphitheatre
