Assos-the theater

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The theater, facing the sea and the island of Lesbos was built into a natural rock cavity to the south of the city center. According to the construction technique and the planning specifications, it is a late Hellenistic theater.The building, which had a 5000 seat capacity, slid during an earthquake and was ruined considerably and most of the stones were taken away because it was used as a quarry during the later centuries. Now, it has been excavated and prepared for restoration
