Who would have known that there is a Roman Theater in the middle of Zaragoza? If you have not visited Rome, this is a fabulous alternative. A must-see attraction in beautiful Zaragoza!

Well worth seeking out and is a very authentic site. It is fairly small in size compared to other Roman Amphitheatres and is sheltered by a stylish roof bit this takes nothing away from its charm and attraction. Please be aware that this site closes from 2pm untill 5pm. Many are taking photos through the railings when this site is... More

Very interesting place and very modern whilst preserving the discovery for posterity. The Romans always showed us how advanced they were.

It was a pleasant surplice to visit the Roman theatre in Zaragosa and to se how big influence the Romans must have had on this part of the world.

The possibility to explore the remnants of a first century A.D. roman theater would be reason enough to get to this place, but the fact that on top of that you can understand the whole history of the city over the years based on one site, is even better - romans, moors, jews, catholics, peninsular wars, etc, all linked to...

One day in Zaragoza and we called in to see these most impressive ruins in the centre of the city. Very good and interesting museum incorporated into the site. Well protected in adverse weather - well worth a visit

It's the only "open pit" site of the four included in the Ceasaraugusta combination ticket (and the best of them). Almost all finishing stone blocks except for the few of the arena's floor are gone. Archeologists think the finish was all marble. The remaining structure is poured mortar, even the arches. Quite unusual.

The extent of the building can be seen on two sides from the street. The museum - and other museums around the city - gives a more in-depth insight into roman buildings. I've seen more complete theatres elsewhere but am always struck by the continuity of life from ancient to contemporary cultures. Humbling.

Thank goodness this was not bulldozed away and largely remains as it was 2000 years ago. I always enjoy visiting Roman theatres and this one is no exception. You walk all around for better understanding of how they built them.
