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.

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.
