Ancient theater of Dion

To the south and on the borders of the settlement of Dion, having to the west the Sanctuary of Demeter is the Ancient Theater. A unique construction from the Hellenistic period, dating to the reign of Philip V (221-179 BC). It is built on the slope of a low natural hill, with northeast orientation, which according to Vitruvius is suitable for good ventilation of the area.

From a construction point of view, the theater was formed with excavation and artificial earthworks and the result of these interventions is the harmonization with the natural landscape, making it unique in its kind. Today, it stands majestically and revives its old glories, since after interventions, with the installation of wooden stands, it has a capacity of 4,000 seats and hosts performances as part of the Olympus Festival.
