This amphitheatre is accessed through the museum which has a very reasonable entry fee. It is clearly laid out and has explanations in English and Spanish of how this was built, the intervening years (100's of them) and then rediscovered only in the last 30 years or so. It shows some of the excavations in places, where the Moors built... More

Just to warn you that a lot of people's first attempt to enter this attraction is via the exit - where they won't let you go in! If you do go to the exit walk around the front, towards the plaza where you will find the entrance - due to poor signage you may find your route slightly difficult. I've... More

Views are great from top down and bottom up. Signage is helpful and in English. Part of an easy walk around town.

We found this by mistake. Were amazed what was at the end of the museum. Couldn't believe this gem was hiding behind a museum. Definitely worth a visit.

Very interesting museum, entrance situated of the Plaza de Ayuntamiento. There is a short video presentation explain history of the theatre, then you walk through corridors with displays of artifacts found, then escalators, eventually coming into the theatre. There are photographers as you enter who take your photo and catch you on the way out with photo in a presentation... More

A rare example restored with care, The entry cost is reasonable and discounted for elderly or students. Access takes the visitor through background information and up a lift or escalators to arrive at the mid level with a great view of the Theatre. The Only downside we could see was that steps down to the stage area were without handrails,... More

This is a very cleverly designed and attractive museum. Visitors are slowly funneled to the actual amphitheater. They pass interesting displays of artifacts and information that places the theater ruins in context. The theater ruins are interesting but not overwhelming compared to other Roman sites in the Med.
