The Roman amphitheater is composed of excavations discovered in the grounds of the former Faculty of Veterinary Medicine with a capacity for between 30,000 and 50,000 spectators. Due to its size, it was the third largest amphitheater in Hispania (Spain and Portugal), behind the Coliseum in Rome and in Carthage. The excavations were realized on the occasion of the reform to convert the building into the future Rector of the University. What has been preserved from the amphitheater is the foundation, including a gallery of distribution and the wall of the podium, which separated the zone of the sand of the stage.
