Location: Chora

Odysseas Elytis was a famous Greek poet who wrote modern poetry and was awarded the Nobel Literature Prize in 1979.
The Odysseas Elytis Amphitheatre in Ios was named after the poet and is located at the top of Chora, behind the whitewashed windmills that stand there.

Though the amphitheater is made of marble and according to the ancient Greek style, it was constructed relatively recently as compared to other architectural wonders of Ios. It is a colossal structure and can hold up to 1100 people. Every year, most of the cultural events of the island are held there.

The events are organized by the municipality of Ios. During the summer musical concerts, plays and other performances take place at this theatre. You should definitely visit whether you enjoy a performance or not.
