The Great Palestra - John Seach
The Great Palestra is located opposite
the Amphitheatre and was excavated between 1936 and 1951.
Pompeians used to come here for athletic
games and sports. The area is 130 by 140 m and has a pool
surrounded by two rows of trees which
provided relief from the sun. Traces of the roots can be seen.
