Amongst the destinations of archaeological interest in Thassos, stands out the ancient theater, built in a natural hollow in the hill, with spectacular views. It dates back to the 5th century BC while it was dedicated to the god of drama and play, Dionysus.

There are still large parts of the theater well preserved, and worth a visit not only for its magnificent location with great sunsets, but also for the famous festival which takes place with theatrical and musical performances!
