This outdoor theatre was designed and built in 1929 by architects Ramón Reventós and Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí for the Universal Exhibition in Barcelona. Rubió and Reventós drew their inspiration from the plan of the Epidaurus theatre. As it was built in an old disused quarry in the mountain, the cut stone wall serves as the theatre’s stage.
With an area of 460 square metres, the theatre can accommodate up to 1,900 spectators.
The Grec Festival has been held here every year since 1976, offering major artistic performances, especially in summer. The theatre is scarcely used the rest of the year.
Within the grounds of the theatre are some gardens and a restaurant.
