Calle de la Alcazabilla, Malaga.

Founded by the Phoenicians in 800 BC, Malaga was also conquered by the Greeks, the Carthaginian and the Romans in 202 BC. For this reason it became an important port city and one of the Roman enclaves of the Mediterranean.

Construction of the Roman Amphitheatre in Malaga dates from this period to the first century during the reign of Augustus. It is one of the oldest Roman theatres in the Iberian Peninsula. For centuries, it remained buried under the ground and it was only in 1951 that it was discovered.

It is located at the foot of the Alcazaba and entry is free. There are also guided visits organised.
