Built in the time of Augustus in the area of the area of the Forum of the Colonia and the port, the planners took advantage of the steep slope of the hill to build part of the seating. Despite much of it having been destroyed during the 20th century, the remains of three fundamental parts of the structure are still visible: the cavea (seating), the orchestra (the hemicycle at the foot of the seating) and the scaena (stage area). The ruins can be seen from the purpose-built lookout point.
Sunday, 11 p.m. Advance booking essential.
