Probably I didn't read much about this theatre but on the photos it looked enormous. It's a very old Roman theatre in the middle of Malaga. Nice place to meet nearby but not so attractive for me.

We saw this as part of our hop on hop off Electric Bike tour. It was so beautifully preserved and the fact that it was just uncovered within the last 50 years was amazing.
