Caption: Roman amphitheatre, Nimes, France. This amphitheatre, also called the Arena of Nimes, was built in around 70 AD for public gladiator fights, executions, and animal hunting events. For several centuries it was used variously as a village and fortress. It is now used as a bullring (statue of matador at right). The central space is 133 metres long and 101 metres wide, while its two levels (each with 60 arches) reach a height of 21 metres. Made from limestone, it is one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres.
