The roman colonial city of Augusta Raurica was a flourishing commercial metropolis. With the Erleb-AR app it is now possible to behold the grandstand of the third theatre, as did the antique romans, or to saunter between the pillars of the temple on the Schönbühl hill.
Around AD 70 the terrain was completely reorganised. At the centre a massive temple surrounded by columns was erected on a podium. Its remains are still visible today. The emperor and the Roman state gods were probably worshipped at this temple, which acted as a symbol of the power of the Roman empire.
You can get more information about this temple and all other sights in the AUGUSTA RAURICA museum.
Before that it had been altered several times. From AD 200 onwards there were two different theatres in the town: the playhouse in the centre and the amphitheatre on the south-western edge of the town. The theatre that survives today was the third building to be erected in this location and had a capacity to hold c. 10,000 spectators.
