A surviving theatre and Sanctuary, an interessant place to visit if you like ancient sites, thanks to the city's spirit and its fated role in history; perhaps the rest of this nice theatre serves still for feasts and events.

This archeological site, which is situated 20-30 minutes outside of Ioannina, features a really well preserved ancient theater and a lot of information about the culture of the people that lived in that area. During summer, there are some plays performed there!
