Amazing Epidaurus, silent Bourtzi


Epidavros, the ancient, greek circular theater with its fine acoustics , aesthetics ,and stone seats, is still in use today. Many plays, concerts, and festivals are held here. Despite the strong sunrays and climbing through the site (almost like in Mycenae) , it was a very rewarding visit.




Epidaurus, the vast amphitheater
Well preserved and much popular
Good acoustics, stage and seats
Enable art performances by Greeks.



Naplio- Bourtzi Castle (fortress)

In the background, the Bourtzi tiny island
On it , a castle-fortress, tall and silent
Built by the Turks to control
Access to harbour of Naplio

(Naplio - the greek capital before it was moved to Athens).
