about Cagliari Amphitheatre
Cagliari Amphitheatre is a rock-hewn Roman amphitheatre dating to the second century AD.
The origins of Cagliari Amphitheatre are obscure, though it is thought to have been built around the 2nd century AD and was certainly in use by the mid-3rd century, as referenced by ancient authors. Cut directly into the rock face and augmented with additional marble construction, the amphitheatre would have been used for a number of events, including gladiatorial games and public executions.
With the fall of the Roman Empire, Cagliari Amphitheatre fell into disuse and, like many other Roman constructs, was partially pillaged for materials over the centuries.
Today Cagliari Amphitheatre is open as a tourist attraction as well as hosting local musical events.
