The Theatre of Dionysus may be a ruin but what a gorgeous ruin that is. The place in its hay days could accommodate a whopping 17000 residents of old Grecia. One of the oldest ones that have seen the light of day, the theatre was said to be the most prestigious in ancient times. Greece has been known as the motherland of drama as an art form. The Dionysus theatre was built at the time when 'drama' or 'theatre' was taking its nascent shape.
It was built in a natural hollow and still retains the main stage and parts of the steps leading up to it. It was built in honor of Dionysus and the performances that took place there were also dedicated to him. The Greek God of Wine and Madness, finds a lovely homage through the sculptures that depict his life, many of which still adorn the place. It is certainly worth the visit due to these carvings while at the Acropolis.
