The Roman Theater of Cartagena

Built under the reign of Augustus it is well documented that the theater was erected between the years 5 and 1 BC. The theater was devoted to Lucio and Cayo Caesar, nephews of Octavio Augustus.The Theater could hold up to 6,000 spectators and its construction was done using three moeniana subdivided subsequently into five radial stairways in the ima, and seven in the media and summa cavea.The access to the theater was done through the corridors or audits. The side corridors gave access to the orchestra and  there was a proscenium containing three rows of seat for the high society of the time. This place is also known as proedria.

The Roman Theater of Cartagena was acconditionated by the Architect Rafael Moneo under the auspices of the Fundación Teatro Romano de Cartagena. Here is the link to Moneo´s project
