There is no excuse not to visit these ruins as they are right in the middle of the old town. With plenty of seating around, grab a spot and admire the great view

The Roman theater was only unearthed recently, after being covered over by the many different cultures who lived here.

Stunning Roman amphitheater that is accessible by just walking down the street or you can visit. It is magnificently preserved and utilized for modern day concerts. A must see in Malaga.

The Roman theatre deserves a short visit. Free. Reasonably well reconstructed. Good explanations at the entrance room.

We spent some time sitting on the ancient seats before visiting the Alcazaba which is right next to it. It's free to enter, and I didn't realise until about to write this review that there was a visitor centre too! Well worth a visit.

This is a very well preserved example of a Roman Theatre with an excellent audiovisual display explaining the daily life of an actor.

This is a truly remarkable place to view. One can enter part of the theatre, and see the construction of ancient Roman history. There is a visitors centre close by, but unfortunately we did not have the time to view it.Access close by to the Alcazabra.
