About Malaga Roman Theatre

Malaga Roman Theatre (Teatro Romano de Málaga) is a picturesque surviving vestige of ancient Malaga. Constructed in the first century AD, during Augustus’ reign, this picturesque theatre rose approximately 16 metres in high and spanned 31 metres in diameter. In use until the third century, Malaga Roman Theatre was used for its materials over the years, particularly for the Alcazaba fortress which overlooks it.

Unexcavated until 1951, today Malaga Roman Theatre is open to the public with an interpretative centre on site.
