The design of the open air theatre goes back to the models of similar monuments that have been preserved in our days. In order to optimize advantages of design, the usual cases involving adverse sound environments required the combined exploitation of the advantages of the location and the limitation of the boundaries of the theatre space based on the model of Greco-roman theatre.
Thus the theater lies in a location that has been designated from Unesco as Cultural Heritage and follows the terrain of the site. It is protected by a cluster of rocks which is responsible for its great acoustics. The theater has 1,500 seats that connect visually the mountainous region with the southwest coast of Crete.
