Thebes

Thebes, the city

With easy access, about an hour away from Athens, in a wonderful natural environment that combines mountain and sea, with plenty of archaeological sites and religious monuments and a lively figure, we meet Thebes. A destination that has a lot to offer to the traveller.

The archaeological museum

Thebes has one of the most important archaeological museums in Greece, with rare collections of its kind and numerous finds from various historical periods. Its characteristic feature is the medieval tower of Saint Omer, located in the courtyard of the Museum.

Churches and monasteries

In Thebes and the wider region of Viotia, the traveller will meet am amount of large monastic bands and churches, decorated with ornate sculptures, brilliant mosaics and frescoes, testifying to the richness of the place and its direct relationship with the artistic workshops of the capital.
A tour of the monasteries and churches of Thebes is an excellent combination of the natural landscape with the acquaintance of the religious wealth of the area, as well as an opportunity for the traveller to get to know some of the most important religious monuments of Greece and the wider Christian tradition.

The Kavirio Theater

Kavirio of Thiva, about 5.5 km from Thebes and on the way to Livadia, was a sanctuary where mysteries were held in honor of the god Kaviro and his son, Child.

The flowing brook, its many waters and its wooded nature made it ideal for carrying out mysterious ceremonies to promote fruit euphoria as well as fertility of humans and flocks. It seems, however, that passports were held in Kavirio, initiatory ceremonies, which marked the transition from childhood to adolescence and from adolescence to adulthood. This is how the toys and their similarities, which were found in the sanctuary, are interpreted, for example swirls, ankles, bells and miniature vases, as well as abundant clay figurines of children and youngsters, presumably votive images of those who had come to the sanctuary for passport customs. Hunting and sporting performances are interpreted as demonstrating the teens’ initial trials. The initiation took place in a Dionysian atmosphere, as the patron god had the form and character of Dionysus and as a sacred vase of a certain type of beetle.
