Neighborhood: La Reconquista
Overview

Despite all the excavations carried out here this Roman structure still remains buried. However, experts have discovered that the amphitheatre where the Romans were entertained during the Empire was originally an auditorium for just over 13,000 spectators. This means that it was close to the size of the major arenas in Merida or Rome. It dates from the second half of the 1st century A.D. The remains of Roman, Visigothic and Celt-Iberian ceramics have been found here along with early medieval dwellings. The amphitheatre's lower and upper staircases, the track, and the eleven gates (some in good condition) have also been discovered.
