Hercules,

This is really an interesting series of shots, with a TON of history behind them, I'm sure. Shame there apparently isn't anything on google about Xirokambi Lakonias. (yet?). Nor on wikipedia.... as I checked.

Roughly in what historic period was the bridge and the theatre produced and used in?

I particularly like both views of the theatre. Not a big problem you couldn't get it all in with a wider lens, maybe...Would any of the surrounding hills give a good perspective of it (as it seems a hilly area?)

thanks for sharing.

Paul
