Pamukkale Amphitheatre, Pamukkale Overview

The Pamukkale Amphitheatre or the Roman Theatre is situated on a hill in the heart of Hierapolis. It is a magnificent structure that was probably used as a theatre and arena stadium and is an excellent place for photography. Explore its special public passageways on the upper floors. Guided tours are available.

It was built in the 2nd century AD during the reign of Emperor Hadrian and has 45 rows that can seat around 12,000 people. The amphitheatre is divided into two parts, the upper and lower, by a diazomata. It was made using limestone and marble, the former for the structure and the latter for decoration and some seats. In addition, there is a Tribunalia that was meant for the Roman emperors and the city’s privileged guests. The amphitheatre’s orchestra is about 25m high and is shaped like a horseshoe. Its friezes also feature scenes from mythology. Reaching the amphitheatre requires a lot of climbing.
