Located in the centre of the city of Durres Albania, it is one of the largest amphitheatre which once could hold 20,000 people. This cultural heritage remained unknown to the world until it was excavated in the 1960’s. The interesting amphitheatre houses a lovely little chapel area, along with the remains of a mosaic and a church-style window. The building structure is similar to a colosseum, but on a smaller scale.
Destroyed twice by earthquakes in the 6th and 10th centuries, the place is now listed as one of the seven most endangered cultural heritage sites in Europe by the organization Europa Nostra. The chaotic urban planning has taken a toll on the structure and has continuously deteriorated since then. Rescuing this site can also help social and economic revitalization of the city.
It is about 3 kms from Durres.
You can take a cab or taxi that would cost 250 lek.
