The original structure was built on a previous site of a Roman temple, and was constructed in 5th-6th centuries as it gradually expanded. A major expansion took place in the 10th century when this was the major focus for residents. Most of the current structure that is seen today is from the 1712 and of Renaissance style. The bell tower and some of the church used stones from the arena. It was closed when we were there, and I suspect it is not open except for services. The bell tower also was closed.
