It's the only "open pit" site of the four included in the Ceasaraugusta combination ticket (and the best of them). Almost all finishing stone blocks except for the few of the arena's floor are gone. Archeologists think the finish was all marble. The remaining structure is poured mortar, even the arches. Quite unusual.

The extent of the building can be seen on two sides from the street. The museum - and other museums around the city - gives a more in-depth insight into roman buildings. I've seen more complete theatres elsewhere but am always struck by the continuity of life from ancient to contemporary cultures. Humbling.

Thank goodness this was not bulldozed away and largely remains as it was 2000 years ago. I always enjoy visiting Roman theatres and this one is no exception. You walk all around for better understanding of how they built them.

Yes you can see the theatre from the street and yes these are not the best preserved ruins in Europe (as stated by other reviewers below) but the 4 Roman museums of CaesarAugustus' route in Zaragoza are an experience not to be missed. For 7 Euros you can access the Forum Museum, the River Port Museum, the Public Baths Museum... More

I was surprised to find out that Zaragoza has got Roman history. As i am really interested in this, i went to visit it. But after visiting Merida and Segovia it is not so impressive. It's nice but i have seen nicer roman sights in Spain.

Enjoyed visiting this museum and did find the model replica inside useful to visualise the way it would have originally looked. But the best part, seeing the Roman ruins, can actually be viewed from the street without the need to buy a ticket!

This is one of the 4 municipal museums that form a circuit and can be visited with a single combined ticket. They all represent an aspect of the Roman presence in Zaragoza all those years back. They tell you a remarkably interesting story. Among the four, this one is the gem. The Roman theater has been painstakingly restored and preserved... More

We actually managed to see this from the street, came across it as we were wandering around the city. There is a good view and good photo opps to. Didn't feel we needed to actually visit having seen from the outside.

In booking our trip I had no idea how important this city was thru the years. Tour all 4 of the Caesaraugusta sites and use the pass. They do close for siesta so watch your time. The theatre presentation Center was excellent, watch the movie too!
