The Ancient Theatre of Delphi, Greece: The ancient theatre in the archaeological site of Delphi Greece has been built on the same hill as the Temple of Apollo, but it is located further above it. Its situation provided audiences with a great view of the entire sanctuary and the above olive tree valley. Dating back to the 4th century B.C, the theatre was constructed using the limestone of Mount Parnassus.

The 35 rows of the theatre could seat nearly 5000 people, though the lower seats were constructed in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The theatre went through many reformations. However, it has kept its basic structures: the stone seats, a round-shaped stage, and an orchestra. Today it hosts many ancient plays and other cultural events, mostly in summer.
