Roman Theatre, Malaga Overview

Situated in the centre of the city, Roman Theatre is the oldest monument. It is built at the foot of the famous Alcazaba, and is one of the few ancient ruins still left there. One of the remaining symbols of Roman Hispania, the Roman Theatre in Malaga is an iconic monument in the city.

Apart from the main theatre, there is also an modern interpretation centre where the life and customs of the past are presented with the help of new technologies. It is also a place where different types of shows take place. Discovered in 1951, it was almost hidden for many years because of the Casa de la Cultura building. By uncovering the proescenium, the stage, the place for the senators, remnants of the orchestra and the cavea were excavated. There are thirteen rows of seats and that area is known as the vomitorium. Built in 1st century, during the reign of Augustus, the theatre was in use for three centuries. A lot of its construction materials were used in the construction of other monuments like Alcazaba.
