Pula Arena

The local name for the sixth largest Roman amphitheatre in the world is the arena. I am yet to discover if any Christians were martyred here.

Pula is quoted by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy: "come a Pola, presso del Carnaro ch'Italia chiude e i suoi termini bagna" or "as Pula, along the Quarnero, that marks the end of Italy and bathes its boundaries".
