The UNESCO’s world heritage listed monument is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo’s son Asclepius the healer & was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is probably most famous for its theater, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings & still used today due to its amazing acoustics.
