The Odeon of Taormina was discovered in 1893.
It was built by the Romans in the 2nd century AD.
Designed for small elite spectators, it could hold around 200 people.
It is built with large bricks of clay and lime and consists of a scene, an orchestra and a cavea.
Above the cavea there is a brick gallery.
Particularly interesting: the scene was built along the side of a large temple probably dedicated to Aphrodite; the steps and a piece of a column are still visible.
At the side of the scene there is a room reserved for actors.
