Antique Theatre of Orange collection
Follow Alix to Orange and Vaison-La-Romaine !
Founded in 40 B.C. by veterans of Caesar's Gaulish legion, Orange was a Roman colony named Arausio. It rose to fame during the reign of Emperor Augustus, when the theatre was built. Over the centuries, the city was equipped with the typical monuments of Roman urban civilisation: the antique theatre, a triumphal arch, the temples, the hemicycle, the city walls and aqueduct? Enhanced by the remarkable illustrations by Jacques Denoël, you will rediscover the sense of detail and the high documentary standards, supported, as always, by meticulous research, so familiar to the readers of Jacques Martin.
