PLACES OF INTEREST - THE FORTRESSES
Going down the hill from the Alcazaba is Malaga's open-air Roman Theatre. It was built in the 1st century during the reign of the Emperor Augustus. By the 3rd century, it had fallen into disuse and over the centuries stones were taken away and used for other purposes including to build the Alcazaba.
In the 20th century, the theater was entirely forgotten and a cultural center was built upon the site. However, during renovations on the center, the remains of the theater were discovered. Eventually, this led to the demolition of the center and the unearthing of the theater.
In addition to being a historical landmark, the theater is once again used for concerts and events.
