The Roman influence in Arles, France was significant. Both an amphitheater and a theater were constructed. Built in 90 AD, the amphitheater could seat over 20,000 spectators for chariot races and gladiator battles. After the fall of Rome, it became a fortress, and the interior held over 200 housing units. In 1825, it was declared a national monument and was returned to its original use. Today, it draws large crowds for bullfighting during the Feria d’Arles and plays and concerts in summer. The tower (one of three) is a medieval addition.
