The archeological find of the day – Teatro Greco.  This theater was built using one stone, yes, just one.  It can be said to have been the largest sculpture created by the Greeks in the Ancient times.  It was abandoned and grass slowly grew over it – Christians created tombs at the top (which includes a very beautiful running water system – seen in picture three) and the Spanish added a watch tower (picture four).  Today it is used as an opera house while the water system/waterfall still brings down water from the mountains.  It is seen as a reference of culture for the town because so many different cultures used the area.  (taken 28.2.2015)
