Hello, malaga

Malaga might not be as popular as other Spanish cities, but a quick visit to the birthplace of Pablo Picasso is enough to win any visitor's heart. With a great mix of ancient history and modern culture, nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, and several kilometres of beach, it's quite easy to see why Malaga has been described as 'Paradise City'.

Roman Theatre

Situated at the foot of the Alcazaba fortress, El Teatro Romano (Roman Theatre) is the oldest monument in Malaga. This ancient theatre, constructed in the first century BC during Emperor Augustus's reign, remained in use until the third century AD. Subsequently, it fell into disrepair for centuries until the Moors settled in the region, using it as a quarry to build the Alcazaba fortress. Over time, it became buried under debris and remained hidden for nearly five centuries. In 1951, the first archaeological traces were uncovered during the construction of Casa de Cultura, leading to its rediscovery.
