“Centre of town.”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great to have such a spectacle in the centre of town, and fascinating reading about the history and past use of the arena.

“very good”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Free admission to this one, quite stunning looking. There is a free film show to watch and you could look around to see how it had been excavated, it's hard to believe that houses had been built over the top of it.

“Ancient Roman Building still in active use!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Located at the base of the Alcabaza, we had a quick look and took a few photos. What remains of this ancient Roman Theatre is quite impressive and well worth a look.

You can see most of from the street. Only afterwards, we realised that admission for visitors is free (not advertised outside).

That said, I dare say, you have to pay to attend concerts and other events that are staged there occasionally.

“Beautiful relaxing place to people watch! ”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I love this place! It's free to get in & is a really good place to sit and relax and watch the city go about its business. Situated next to the castle, it's a stunning ruined amphitheatre that you are free to walk around or sit and relax to enjoy the sunshine. We sat here often during our stay and a couple of times had a picnic or a drink with us and just relaxed and took in the views. It's a really special place & I would definitely recommend it to anyone a) as an interesting historical building & b) as a place to relax,unwind,stop for lunch, grab a seat and a drink, read a newspaper or simple watch Málaga go about its business. 5 stars.

“A piece of history”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

You do not need to pay to see the old ruins. Either you can stay on the street to take pictures; or if you wish to go onto the steps it's free as well - the entrance is right next to the entrance for the Alcazaba.
