This monument dating from the 1st century is qualified in the 18th century as ‘extensive remains of an amphitheatre in Grand’.
In 1820 was carried the first archeological dig and the monument’s excavation started in 1963.
Up to 1981, 50,000 cubic metres of soil are removed, equivalent to some 600,000 wheelbarrows.
This edifice, which should have reach 25 metres high and welcomed about 17,000 spectators, is centred on an arena where gladiators and hunting animals fought.
