“An amazing excavation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Just outside the entrance to the Alcazabar this theatre is still being excavated but it is possible to get the gist of what it must have been like in Roman Times.

Free to view from the outside only.

“To that 2000 years ago...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

that someone sat here, where you are now, eating the Roman version of popcorn and Coke and watching a show....boggles the mind.

“A Beautiful Roman Theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

The Roman Theater was discovered only in 1951 when gardens were being constructed beside the Casa de Cultura, which was later removed so that the Roman Theater could be seen by tourists. There is an interpretation center beside the theater that explains the history of this sight. The Romans constructed the theater in 1 A.D. on the side of the hill, where the Alcazaba now stands. The Romans used marble facing on the seats of the theater to make it elegant.

“Definitely Worth It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2009

It was free and right beside the Alcazaba, so it's definitely worth it. It felt 'neat', for lack of a better word, to sit in on a bench in this theatre that people were sitting on 2000 years ago.
