Built in the 2nd century AD in the Roman era, the theater has 13 semicircular tiers made of white and gray marbles imported from Europe. This can accommodate about 800 spectators. 2 of the marble columns are still standing by the theater.

Roman baths: To the north of the theater lies the Roman baths which was built in the 3rd century BC
The baths retain the style of the Romans in constructing pools, pipes and the hypocaust .

The site has also other interesting things like a yet unexcavated habitation quarters, cisterns, a portico and the exquisite 'villa of the birds.' There is also a garden were some antiquated salvaged from sea are on display The 'villa of the birds' contains very beautiful ground geometric and animal mosaics featuring birds, panther and roses. The villa is now open to the public.
This was originally a floor of a house that dates to the 1st or 2nd century AD, but fire destroyed it. The ground was particularly tiled in the era of Roman Emperor Hadrian (ruled 117-138). Some walls in the villa belong to the Byzantine era. Conservators had to clean the mosaics that had survived the fire, fill in the gabs and cover the whole ground for protection.
