Ruin Arena / Stadium
The Roman amphitheater Arenes de Nimes, constructed around 70 CE as a theater, later hosted bullfights and other public events. Thirty-four rows of seats, accommodating up to 16,300 visitors, ring this vaulted building's elliptical central space. The amphitheater was converted into a fortified town and refuge for denizens during the invasions and wars of the second millennium. Today, the amphitheater has been restored to its original purpose--now with a removable cover and heating system--and hosts musical acts from around the world.

  • If they are less impressive, they are well highlighted by a beautiful clear around space. Right now they are under renovation, but for my part I think it takes away a little of the historic charm to this glorious monument. I haven't visited inside, too many negative reviews.
