Archaeological sites

ROMAN ODEON It was constructed during the first half of the 2nd century AD. The monument is open to the public and it hosts performances during the Patras Festival.
ROMAN STADIUM Excavations of the 6th Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities Board brought to light parts of a large public building from the 1st century AD, west of the Roman Odeon.
ROMAN BRIDGE & AQUADUCT The Roman bridge was constructed during the 2nd-3rd cent. AD over the river Kalinaos. The bridge was part of the public road connecting Patras with Aigion. It’s the best preserved two-arched bridge in Greece.
CASTLE OF PATRA The Castle of Patras was built during the second half of the 6th century AD, on the ruins of the ancient Acropolis. The castle consists of a triangular exterior space, reinforced with towers and bastions.
THE TOMBS OF VOUDENI Voudeni, ca 7 km northeast of Patra, is one of the most important mycenaean sites in Achaia, possibly the core of prehistoric Patra; perhaps it can be associated with Mesatis, one of the three hamlets which made up ancient Patra.
The site, which covers an area of ca. 18ha., comprises the chamber tomb cemetery, at Liapeika and the settlement on the neighbouring hill named Bortzi. More than 65 chamber tombs have been excavated so far, dating from the Late Helladic II to the sub-mycenaean period (16th-11th cent. B.C).
FORTRESS OF RIO The first fortification of the passage was effected in 1499 by Bayazit II, smaller in area with a double courtyard and a moat. Modern renovations and electricity have rendered the place suitable for events and festivities.
The Dymaean Wall or Kalogria Castle is a prehistoric acropolis in western Achaea, Greece. The fortress stands in a strategic position on a rocky hilltop, north of the Prokopos lagoon, near the village Araxos and is the only fortified Mycenaen acropolis in Western Greece.
THEATRE AIGEIRA The 3rd century ancient theater, with a magnificent view over the Corinthian bay, brought to light by Austrian archaeologists, was hewn from conglomerate stone and occasionally hosts cultural events.
The acropolis of the Mycenaean city, called Yperisa or Yperisii, is close by.
