The roman theatre and ruins is an interesting spot from a historic perspective. It is amazing to think that that much of the Theatre is in tact and still usable today.

The roman theatre is placed below the alkazaba. We visited the place only for a short while as a boy had been fallen down so it was partly closed. However it is a nice piece of history.

Free to visit and to be fair you can see most of it from the street, however sitting on the top row of the tiered seats really gives a feel for what it might have been like for the Romans attending this Theatre

The best view is from outside looking across the stage to the auditorium. You get a sense of its history and architecture. The remains are very exposed for visiting on a hot day, and it is often hot here. Plenty of Roman theatres exist, many...More

Beautifully restored Roman theater.It is just next to the Alcabazar in Malaga do not miss it if you are there.You can see it very well with the Alcabazar in the backround and you don't need to actually enter to see it.
