This was a hidden gem. A great site to visit for people of all ages. Great access and a video theatre in English and Spanish to bring the former amphitheater to life. A must when visiting Cádiz.

Found by chance , a free entry to see the old roman ruins of a theatre. You can walk out on to a platform to see them close up.

I had to see it from the back side on an alley. You can see the ruins from there and some tunnels. It seems to be closed for emergency renovations. Cool to see but I can't rate it more than 3 stars!

2000 years old but apparently just recently unearthed and the full museum and walking route through the tunnels just recently opened. Really interesting history and good displays in the museum. Free,

We were keen to better understand the role that the Romans played in Spain, and the museum area here was informative and helpful. They are restoring the theatre, which has been damaged in the past, but I would still recommend visiting.

Worth visiting, particularly as it's free to see how the original looked as I believe some of it has flat built on the site.

They did a superb job building a modern museum around the ruins. A short and sweet experience. It is also free on Mondays so was a bonus for us!

Perhaps because I have visited Roman Theatre's in Greece and other parts of Spain that were very impressive, this one fell flat for me.. It was recently discovered in 1980 and it looks like a cursory excavation was done to give you a general idea...More
