Ancient City-State of Epídavros
It was here that a very important nucleus of ancient Greek civilization was created; a renowned sanctuary for healing, to which the physically and mentally sick traveled afar for 1000 years to seek a cure. The sanctuary of Epídavros is situated amidst olive, pine and citrus trees and is surrounded by the sparkling blue sea. It is believed that it’s sheltered location and natural surroundings, the beauty of the landscape and fertility of the soil, attracted not only men but also gods. The choice of Epídavros as the site where the main (said to be the most splendid) healing sanctuary of the God Asklepios was established was not a random one. The natural beauty and tranquility of the place exerted, as it still does, a beneficial influence on every human being. 


Although Epídavros was a small town, the healing sanctuary was known all over Greece. The theater of Epídavros, built in 4th century B.C., is one of the most special. It is one of the biggest, and one of the most acoustic theaters from the antique era and was built as part of this healing sanctuary. Greek people believed that in that place, the son of god Apolon Asklepij was born and he become patron of healers and doctors. This is why they built the healing sanctuary in this breathtaking place near the sea. The ancient healers would heal sick bodies in the spa., on sport courts and with medicines that today, we would call complementary. They also believed that the body can’t recover if the spirit is not healthy, and therefore regularly visited shows in the theater. The way of healing in the sanctuary of Epídavros, Greece was a holistic one. It is said that Epídavros is the ancient root of all medicine and healing.
