Roman Theatre Tours

Roman Theatre
Built between the 5th and 1st centuries BC, Cartagena’s Roman Theater wasn’t discovered during modern times until 1988, following which a massive restoration took place. Come 2008, the newly discovered theater was opened to the public along with a museum, once again inviting visitors into a grand space that, during Roman times, welcomed some 6,000 spectators.

The theater is situated on a vista-rich city hillside, from which the stadium seating was carved out of the actual rock below. During a visit, you can explore the different corners of this conserved space, as well as check out the museum, which offers an in-depth overview of the archeological remains along with informative panels explaining the restoration (all in both English and Spanish).

Practical Info

The theater is located just steps away from other popular city sights, including the cathedral, Town Hall, Calle Mayor, and the Naval Museum. Note that it is closed on Mondays, and located on a pedestrian street and therefore only most closely accessed by foot.
