This 2nd century a.d. theater was carved from the cliff that rises above the crashing ocean. Contrasted against the vast spread of seaside sky and the abrupt and rugged cliff, the amphitheater must have been one of the most dramatic in the ancient world. Even in ruins, it is not a sight that you will soon forget. In its day, up to 14,000 spectators would gather here for bloody gladiator battles, other games, and executions. The tiered seats that they sat upon are the same ones you’ll see today. Lest the beauty of the site entrance you, a monument declares that “Many innocent lives were taken in this amphitheater.”
