The Roman Amphitheater Of Carthage

Carthage, Tunisia

The Roman amphitheater of Carthage

Built in the 1st century AD J-C. outside the city, the amphitheater of Carthage was considered one of the greatest of the Roman Empire. The descriptions given by the chroniclers of the Middle Ages tell us of imposing structures and arcadic arcades.
Today, slightly behind the road, there remains only an oval-shaped arena, 65 m long and 37 wide with, at both ends, the accesses through which wild beasts arrived. The most famous of the tortured who experienced such an end, Saint Perpetua and Saint Felicite, martyred because of their faith in this enclosure in 203.
