Roman amphitheatre

The Roman amphitheatre is an imposing trace of the past that reappeared in the early twentieth century in the centre of Lecce, after centuries of oblivion. Dug from the tufaceous stone, eliptical in shape, it is more than 100 metres long and could host 25,000 spectators. The cavea, currently below street level, has a double order of stands.
