Turkey 55

The Great Theatre at Ephesus, begun during the reign of Claudius (41-54 A.D.)
and completed during the reign of Trajana (98-117 A.D.), can accomodate 25,000.
Closed for a few years in the 1990's after the rock group Metallica played here.
Metallica and their fans managed to do more damage to the theatre in a two hour
concert than invading armies had done during fifteen centuries.
