Butrint Things to Do: 84 reviews and 158 photos


The upper temple, behind the theatre, was constructed in the 3rd century BC. It had a portico supported by two columns and two pilasters (no longer present). The shrine was constructed of large blocks, plastered over and then whitewashed. At the back of the temple is the base of an altar. It is not known to whom the temple was dedicated, although it is thought to have been Dionysius.

You can just see the temple in my photo, above the theatre and below the castle and bushes on the hillside.
