Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

The original theatre was constructed in 1599, but later burned down. The reconstruction was finished in 1614 and then demolished in 1644. The final reconstruction of the theatre was done at what historians believe to be around the same area as the original theatre and was built to accurately represent the orignal in terms of seating and layout. The theatre has a capacity of 1400 spectators, though the original had a capacity of 3000. Image source:
