"Theatre" Shahba' Things to Do Tip by maykal

Shahba' Things to Do: 30 reviews and 50 photos

There is a small perfectly in-tact theatre in someone's back yard! The local children can show you how to get in, and also how to climb up a small tower for a good view over the town. The landscape surrounding Shahba is volcanic black, and the remains of the Roman city are built using volcanic rock...in other words, greyish black...so you can imagine the theatre being quite a contrast to more famous theatres at Palmyra and Petra. The theatre is supposedly still used occasionally for local productions, but at the moment it is a bit of an adventure playground for the town's children!
