It is very good old Roman Structure still well preserved. The Roman Theatre should be visited before entering into Alcazaba.

At the foot of the Alcazaba you will find the Teatro Romano. It has been restored splendidly & looks fantastic at night when it's all lit up

A brief visit suffices here, but the fact that it is free of charge only adds to the fact that this is nevertheless a GREAT visit. In a matter of minutes, we learned a great deal about the history that transpired here--and learning that the site was rediscovered only as recently as the 1950s makes it especially fascinating.

You can see everything you need to from the free vantage point. No point in paying to see the rest. A disappointing "site" of Malaga.

Located centrally in the historic centre of Malaga, it's free to go in the Roman theatre so why not. Beware however that the reason it's free is that our visit took literally 10 minutes! You don't really see anything from inside that you can't already see from outside. But worth a quick peek anyway.

The theatre is right in the middle of the town. You can see it easily from the street or you can go up some steps to get a view from the side. There is no charge at present for this. Another object of interest right in front of the theatre is the ruins of some deep basins that we used... More

A big plus: very accessible, right near the cathedral and the palace ruins. You can sit at a cafe, having your cappuccino and gaze at the old ruins. While we are here, they do have some performances, but I don't know if we will go. I do not understand Spanish.

Do not overlook though it's free of charge. You can really get a good idea how this theatre was working. Just sit on stone and start dreaming. If you have just 30mins - this is your spot.

The theatre is situated below Alcazaba in the city center of Málaga. It is free and nice to see maybe a little small but good if you have some time over.
