    A pesar de estar muy alejado de los principales sitios de visita, sin duda alguna, se trata de los mejores monumentos del Imperio Romano que se mantienen en pie, además de permanecer en mejor estado de conservación que el Coliseo de Roma.

When you go to El Djem in Tunisia, you know that its most famous attraction is its Amphitheatre. But how much do you know about this UNESCO World Heritage Site? When you visit, keep in mind that the Amphitheatre was built by the Romans, under proconsul Gordian, in approximately 238 AD (CE). You see how unique the Amphitheatre is, as it was built on flat ground, not against a hill, like most early Amphitheatres. As you walk through, you may find it hard to believe that this Amphitheatre once seated 35,000, making it the second-largest amphitheatre in the ancient world.
