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

You do not need to pay to see the old ruins. Either you can stay on the street to take pictures; or if you wish to go onto the steps it's free as well - the entrance is right next to the entrance for the Alcazaba.

The Malaga's Roman theatre was discovered in the early 1950s, it is still in very good condition. it's been heavily restored in parts, so that it can be used on occasion for modern concerts, so, take note that what you see is not all authentic. The easiest way to tell is just to look at the stones. If their corners... More

This is a wonderful free attraction on the edge of the old town just underneath the Alcazaba. As well as the excavations which reveal most of the old amphitheatre there is also a small free exhibition area which gives more information about the site and artifacts. A fantastic look back into history and well worth the visit.

Just walking through Malaga means that you are walking into history and when one sees the Roman Theatre, you realise that you are standing on places that were walked on by people almost 2000 years ago. A truly remarkable site and one where time needs to be spent. I am just sorry that I was not able to attend a... More
