Once, a great fortress, the Theatre Antique d’Arles or the Ancient Theatre of Arles is now a gorgeous historical site. The grand structure possesses immense power to mesmerise human minds. Built in 12 AD by Emperor Augustus, the Theatre shares a rich history and is a world heritage site.

Even though the Theatre was initially many storeys high, today it is still a grand site exuding with Roman charm. Every brick and stone exhibits beauty and elegance of the ancient times. The cavea, or the amphitheatre is huge and at the time could accommodate 10,000 spectators. Other monumental pillars and columns are etched with intricate carvings and the theatre on the whole is a great architectural exhibit.

The construction of the theatre dates back to 1st century BC. Today, in the ancient roman settings, outdoor plays and concerts are still held during the summers. To soak up history, beauty and fantasies, the Theatre is the perfect place to visit.

  • Not too much to see. The one in Orange is way more complete and better preserved.

  • The Roman Theater is not very well preserved, but it is nice to see. During our visit, they were preparing some concert in theatre.

  • Nice place to visit , but don't go with your dog they are not allowed.

  • Your average Roman ruin. I appreciate that they defray the cost by using it as a venue but that means you have to look at the bleachers inside. Nice view of the river tho'.

  • Only a few parts of the old Roman temple still in place. Overall very interesting
