Little park in the former roman amphitheater, part of the roman walk and worth a visit. Though the floor lies some 5 meter below the current park (according to the information given), the higher levels of the theater remain visible today. Amazingly the site was used as a quarry for a long time.

Despite this, a few arches are still visible today which give the visitor a sense of the original scale. The building was included into the ‘defense wall’ that was constructed in a hurry whiles the roman empire was falling. You walk to the ‘Norman gate’ and barrier from here.

The park is now more of a playground for children and the trees provide shade in summer. Good to have a pick-nick or just rest a little on your city walk.
