1. Area anfiteatro romano Albingaunum

Show sight on map

The Albenga Roman Amphitheater is an archaeological complex located in Albenga, Liguria, Italy. It is the only known amphitheater in the Ligurian Siriviera. It was built on the outskirts of the city in accordance with Roman urban planning because, as it is today, riots erupted because of the games held there, as it was in Pompeii in 59 AD: the clashes were so bloody that the Senate ordered the building closed for 10 years. The ingauno Amphitheater is located on the last hillside of San Martino Mountain, connected to the cemetery in the south of the city by Julia Augusta Avenue, at an altitude of about 50 meters. Its location ensures a view of the entire coast, in addition to enjoying a cool breeze that refreshes summer nights and makes the area healthy. Underneath a layer of slight humus is living rock. The terraced area provides 3,000 square meters of space to accommodate the oval-shaped amphitheater, which residents of the ancient Albingaunum prefer to build here rather than close to the hills as in other cases.
