Théâtre antique d'Orange

Orange, France

The Roman Theater in Orange is one of France's most impressive monuments. It is the only building of its kind which has retained its acoustic stage wall. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the theater was not used as a performance venue for several centuries. In 1562, it was even transformed into a refuge for the population. Restoration only began in the early 1800's, when the seating was rebuilt.
