Ancient theatre of Maronia

Sixteen hundred meters off the road that leads to Marmaritsa Beach, on a natural slope, in a place called “Kampana” (Bell), lies the Ancient Theatre of Maronia.

The theatre, in its firtheatro2st form, belongs to the Hellenistic Years.  There are only three rows of limestone seats, while it is considered certain that the theatre had nine shuttles of at least ten rows of seats. In the Roman years there was an addition to the theatre.  It was a construction that protected the viewers during beast fights. There was a stream running through the theatre, therefore a channel was constructed to  collect the water and shed it at the back of the theatre. The orchestra was probably made of pressed soil, however we do not know its coating during the Roman years.
The scene of the theatre dating back to the Roman years and measuring 23.5×6.3 m., is preserved.
