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

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

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

The Roman theatre of Malaga was only discovered in the early 1950s, so it is still in pretty good condition. Having said that, it's been heavily restored in parts, so that it can be used on occasion for modern concerts etc, so do be aware that what you see is not all authentic.
