Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Malaga / Teatro Romano
Nestled at the foot of a Moorish fortress, Teatro Romano represents the oldest monument in the city. Built under Emperor Augustus in the first century BCE, the amphitheater fell into ruin after centuries of warfare. Some of its columns and capitals were used by Arab settlers in the 8th century to build the famous Alcazaba fortress. Rediscovered in 1951, the theatre has been restored to its original use and now hosts concerts in the summer. Stop by the modern visitor center to see tools and pottery excavated from the site and learn more about its history.

For a free little piece of history, I very much enjoyed coming here a lot. It is still in a very good condition and there are information boards as well. When we went, there was a cat sunbathing on the main stage and it was very amusing. It was not too busy as well which meant you could have some breathing space. For families to older couples I would reccomend a visit because I definitely enjoyed coming here for half an hour.
It’s a pretty, well presented Roman theatre. It’s free and you can get some good pictures. I liked it because it gave me a place to sit and gather my thoughts.
