Arènes de Lutèces - Paris 5th
The Arena Lutetia are the only remaining ruins of the
Gallo-Roman era in Paris with the Thermes de Cluny. This arena could
contain 15,000 people. It covered approximately 132 m/100 m. It
was built between the first century and the end of the second century.
The location of the actor's dressing room, the platform of the stage
and lapidary remains can still be seen. . Completely forgotten during
1500 years they were rediscovered in 1869, when new streets were
planned and diggings ordered. Despite we cannot register these arenas
among the best-known Roman theatres, these ruins are one of the
two most important Gallo-Roman remains of Paris (the others being
the Thermes de Cluny, also in the 5th arrondissement).
