The Ancient Greek Theater of Kassope Reopens After 21 Centuries

The little-known ancient theater of Kassope in Epirus, was recently reopened to the public adding a new must- visit monument to the rich cultural landscape of the area.

The theater of Cassope built in the 3rd century BC is located in the southern foothills of Zaloggo and overlooks the peninsula of Preveza, the Ambracian Gulf, the Ionian Sea, the island of Lefkada and the Acarnanian mountains.

The city of Kassope was founded in the middle of the 4th century BC as the capital of the Kassopaeans, a sub-tribe of the Thesprotians.
