Nestled beneath the Alcazaba, the Roman amphitheater is a stunning remnant of the Roman occupation. It is well preserved, and currently used for concerts during the summer months.

A wonderful reminder of ancient Malaga. It continues underground with a glass section in the pavement for viewing.

We loved the roman theatre that you can actually sit in. The site is preserved in a great accessible way. Very interesting and very reasonably priced. We got the combined ticket so we could visit the castle at the top of the hill. I think it might be free on a Sunday but we went on a sunny day. If... More

My wife and I visited the theater briefly, but we did not enter. We brought a cup of coffee and enjoyed the sun. +0.5 for the ambiance +0.5 for the proximity to fine dining

I am a big fan of anything Roman, so I was very interested to see this theatre which is in a good state of preservation. There are several viewing platforms at different levels which is useful for photographs, and a small museum and interpretation centre.
