Ancient Roman Odeon

Near the square of Agios Georgios lies the Ancient Odeon of Patras, which was built in the mid-2nd century, shortly before the Herod Atticus Odeon. It has all the basic parts of a theater, auditorium, orchestra, proscenium, stage and backstage and its capacity amounts to approximately 2,500 spectators.
Today the Ancient Odeon is the main seat of the International Festival of Patras, hosting, top Greek and foreign artistic groups in the summer.
