Lend me your ear. This Roman Theater is one of 19 constructed in Spain by… Um, Romans. The amphitheater style common in Italy and Greece 2,000 years ago. With many earthquakes, tsunamis, and sediment from those events and centuries of rain, the Theater was covered...More

Happened to be at the right place at the right time. We ended up seeing an unique version of Julius Cesar where the majority of the characters were portrayed by women. For me, it was a bit of a challenge to understand as it was...More

not really much to see. Not worth the effort of finding it to be honest, we stumbled upon it by accident. Most of the view was covered from view by a stage.

Probably I didn't read much about this theatre but on the photos it looked enormous. It's a very old Roman theatre in the middle of Malaga. Nice place to meet nearby but not so attractive for me.

Very interesting plac to see. Those .Ronan's sure built things to last and this is another good example.

Located in the busy part of city, it is next to the new cultural theatre. It's ancient and worth to see, but it will not take you long to tour.
