  • Pompei ruins had established large and small theaters. And also had a theater in this area was the Roman colonial cities and surprise, but were built of small theatres. Said a small theater here is, can accommodate about 5,000 people, including readings of poetry, as well as concerts were presented so. Already nurtured art from 2000 years ago, and I was rich.

  • The Romans 'bread and circus' had it clear...... and the happy populace. It strikes me as being in this "small" city had anfiteatro.teatros.termas.etc.etc say leisure among temples for everyone... hot springs... Entertainment & culture...! AND EVERYBODY'S HAPPY...! But in Spain... paid 21 per cent by keep me entertained... THERE IS MUCH POLITICAL IGNORANT... APPLY THE TALE... BREAD AND CIRCUSES...

  • Maybe better preserved, but most used at all, this place is more telling than the close theatre.
