A PROJECT to restore Malaga’s Roman Theatre has been given the green light.

An initial €283,000 is to be invested to protect the ruin from further deterioration and to repair previous damage, Culture Minister Luciano Alonso has announced.

“The axis of the Picasso Museum and the Roman Theatre, along with the future Museum of Malaga and the Alcazaba-Gibralfaro, will become the cultural golden mile of the city,” said Alonso.

But the PP party has called on the Junta to ‘clarify’ conflicting reports of how the money will be spent.

The theatre has received an impressive 2.2 million visitors since the Junta took over its management in 2004.

It is classed as one of the key Roman Theatres of Andalucia along with the Italica in Sevilla, and Cadiz’s Baelo Claudia.

From August, opening hours will be extended due to public demand, said Alonso.


  1. We spent 10 days in Malaga in June. It’s a beautiful city; we just fell in love with it. The Picasso Museum, Roman Theatre, Alcazaba-Gibralfaro were absolutely stunning and a true delight. Can’t wait to go back!!
