Kato Paphos Acropolis and Odeon, Cyprus - Architecture,Music,Art

Art Gallery, Scenic

This second century Odeon is built of sandstone. It is now used in the summer for music and theater performances. The theater has been partially refurbished after excavation. It is an arc with an arena and 12 rows of seats. Nearby are the relics of ancient metropolis walls and the Roman Agora. The Agora, a large court of 1,000sq.ft used as a souk place, stands in front of the Odeon. Only the foundations and parts of the columns are evident. It almost certainly dates from the second century. Next to the Odeon there is a contemporary lighthouse and a wobbly mound believed to have been the Acropolis of the municipality.
