Well presented Roman ruins with ample informative information in the centre of Málaga. Not a large site but well worth visiting.

next to the city center and the Alcazaba , a well preserved Roman amphitheater. Entrance is free and the perspective is great with the square in front of it and the castle behind.

5 stars as it is free and wonderfully "restored" and show place. A great thing to have on your doorstep, as a massive fan of roman ruins I was amazed how it was just there- with no graffiti! They have a little room where you can read up on the history which is free and you get to go down,... More

The Roman Theatre was discovered while a new library was being built. They moved the library and are slowly excavating the theatre. Most of the work is visible from the street and is an interesting site.

Great (free) ruins reflecting a Roman theater venue. Well worth the visit if you are in Malaga. Right in the center of town.

Great to have such a spectacle in the centre of town, and fascinating reading about the history and past use of the arena.

Free admission to this one, quite stunning looking. There is a free film show to watch and you could look around to see how it had been excavated, it's hard to believe that houses had been built over the top of it.

Located at the base of the Alcabaza, we had a quick look and took a few photos. What remains of this ancient Roman Theatre is quite impressive and well worth a look. You can see most of from the street. Only afterwards, we realised that admission for visitors is free (not advertised outside). That said, I dare say, you have... More

My girlfriend and I love this place! It's free to get in & is a really good place to sit and relax and watch the city go about its business. Situated next to the castle, it's a stunning ruined amphitheatre that you are free to walk around or sit and relax to enjoy the sunshine. We sat here often during... More
