Kourion: Flashback to the 2nd Century BC
Visit Kourion on the southern coast of Cyprus and you will stand in awe of this archaeological site with its magnificent Greco-Roman theatre dating back to the 2nd century BC. Until it was destroyed in a powerful earthquake in 365 AD, Kourion was a flourishing city kingdom, as evidenced in the well preserved remains, which include a Roman agora.
Such is the beauty and magic of theatre’s unique location directly overlooking the Mediterranean blue, that it was fully restored in order to host open-air concerts and theatre performances. On summer nights, audiences flock to Kourion theatre to enjoy everything from ancient Greek drama to Shakespeare plays, all performed under starry skies and enhanced with the sea breeze. A visit to Kourion theatre will rank among the most memorable experiences during your Cyprus holiday; one which combines history and culture in the ultimate Mediterranean setting.
