The original theatre dates from the 6C BC but was remodelled by the Romans in the 2C. This is where the 5 000 spectators who came to watch the recitals in honour of Apollo and Dionysus were seated. In the first row are the seats reserved for priests and other officials. From the top row there is a beautifulview over the ruins of the sanctuary, the Pleistos Valley and Mt Kirphis. The promenade allowing people to circulate around the theatre continues westwards as a path up to the stadium with fine views of the site of Delphi.
