Kourion theatre

Amicale du conseil de l'europe



Kourion  was  an  important  city-kingdom  in antiquity  and  one  of  the  most  impressive archaeological  sites  in  Cyprus.  The magnificent Greco-Roman   theatre   was   built   in   the   2nd century BC and extended in the 2nd century AD.  Today  the  theatre  has  been  completely restored  and  is  used  for  musical  and  theatrical performances.    Excavations    have    unearthed the  “House  of  Eustolios”,  originally  a  private villa,  which  during  the  Early  Christian  period was  turned  into  a  public  recreation  centre.  It consists  of  a  complex  of  baths  and  rooms  with beautiful  5th  century  AD  mosaic  floors.  The early  Christian  basilica  dates  back  to  the  5th century  AD  and  was  probably  the  Cathedral of  Kourion,  with  separate  baptistery  on  the external  northern  side.  The  “House  of  Achilles” and  the 

Strasbourg Cathedral 
Located on the site of an ancient Roman camp, Strasbourg Cathedral stands out for its height : its tower , completed in 1439 , is the highest of Christianity. Sculptures and stained glass windows tell the sacred history, as well as allegories and symbols of the Middle Ages. Inside, in addition to the windows of the twelfth and fourteenth centuries and the magnificent Gothic style chair , the famous as tronomical clock is a spectacle in itself with its daily procession of apostles (at around 12.30). 
La Maison Kammerzell 
The construction of this house, which studs are among the most richly decorated of the city, dates back to the year 1427. However, the building will take its final appearance in 1589. Built by the famous cheese merchant Martin Braun, in this very special Renaissance style, the ground floor is made of stone and the upper floors with carved wooden windows in a”cul-de-bouteille” style.
