Roman Theatre and Art and History Museum

The finest surviving Roman theatre in Europe, which is classified a UNESCO world heritage site

Located in the heart of Provence, the large Roman theatre, built in the first century CE, is an exceptional example of Roman architecture. Located opposite the theatre, the Art and history museum retraces the history of Orange, from antiquity to the twentieth century. It contains the oldest Roman cadastre (land register), the decorative remains of the theatre, and paintings and furniture from the seventeenth to the twentieth century, and the contemporary period.
