Makarios III Amphitheatre

The Makarios III Amphitheatre, the oldest modern amphitheatre in Cyprus, has hosted some of the capital’s most important cultural events. Built in the 1950s at the School for the Blind, it became an ideal venue for theatre, concerts, and other cultural activities and events, largely thanks to the efforts of the late Nikolas M. Iereidis, the School’s first Director, who was a noted theatre-lover.

Cyprus Theatre Organisation rents and manages the theatre.
