Roman theatre

Roman theatre

The Roman theatre was built during the 1st century AD as the amphitheater.
The theatre is easily recognizable thanks to its excellent archaeological remains: the magnificent facade with its lower stone seating blocks for the audience, and the orchestra. On the other side it is the foundations of the wall that acted as a backdrop, behind which were the dressing rooms and warehouses.

When the theatre fell into disuse, other buildings were erected and the facade became the retaining wall for other constructions.
Now the theatre is used as a location for music concerts or for the Christmas Market.
