Having recently visited the Roman city of Merida in Extramadura I wasn't expecting to see anything like it in Malaga. But here is a perfect Roman theatre, only recently excavated and put on display in the most informative and welcoming manner. You can see the theatre seating clearly from the pedestrianised street, but go through the exhibition reception, which is... More

To think that this relic was discovered so recently and quite by accident, is amazing in itself. To see all of the elements of the theater, such as the entrance to the stage, the orchestra area the seating area and the entrance door was powerful.

On previous trips to Malaga I've seen the restoration work on this site in progress and now it's finished, the result is wonderful. They've built an impressive small visitor centre, with excellent digital displays (with text in English and Spanish). The story behind the restoration itself is also very interesting. And it's free - don't miss it! This whole area,... More

Make a brief stop to take a picture. It is not really to much of an attraction but I am sure it is really nice when they have performances there.

Do this as part of a tour of the castle beside it. I have seen better ruins - but definitely worth the trip. The area is also nice for an afternoon.

El Teatro Romano (Roman Theatre) was built in the first Century BC. It is the oldest monument in Malaga and located right at the foot of the beautiful Alcazaba. It a pearl because it is the only remaining Roman ruin in Andalucia. All the other sites have been destroyed after centuries of war and construction. It was built during the... More
