Point of Interest
“Στο πλαίσιο των ανά 4ετία εορτών προς τιμήν του Ασκληπιού στο επιδαύριο ιερό του διοργανώνονταν διαγωνισμοί ραψωδίας, μουσικής και δράματος, καθώς και αθλητικοί αγώνες, που πραγματοποιούνταν στις εγκαταστάσεις του σταδίου. Ο Πίνδαρος αναφέρει την τέλεση γυμνικών αγώνων στο Ασκληπιείο της Επιδαύρου ήδη από τον πρώιμο 5ο αιώνα π.Χ. Στις μέρες μας έχει ολοκληρωθεί από την Επιτροπή Συντήρησης Μνημείων Επιδαύρου η διαμόρφωση του στίβου και η αποκατάσταση των εδωλίων στη νότια πλευρά του σταδίου, ενώ σε εξέλιξη βρίσκεται η αποκατάσταση της θολωτής διόδου στη βόρεια πλευρά του.”
