Rebuilding Through the Ages

In Cartegena, Spain, each new civilization tore down much of the previous tenants structures and rebuilt them to suit their own purposes. In the featured image today, we can see three distinct ancient civilizations at this archeological site. The oldest is the Roman theater with the rows of seats arranged around the stage. Parts of that were torn down by the Muslim civilization that built a mosque on the site in the center of the picture. This was then mostly torn down by the Christians, who built a church on the same site, again with the same materials. So here we have a prime example for the daily prompt Rebuild.
