A few years after gladiatorial contests had been definitively forbidden, the amphitheatre, no longer having any real use or function, was transformed into a fortress. It was surrounded by a strong wall made from blocks recycled from the Roman era. Besieged on several occasions, the amphitheatre proved to be particularly efficient in terms of defence.
