After the sun goes down, a virtual performance is projected on the stage at Caesaraugusta Theater Museum. During the daylight hours, you can take a boardwalk tour of the former theater, which once held 6,000 Roman spectators. A small educational center offers background on the discovery of the site in 1972, and the uses of the theater when the Roman Empire was at its height. The remarkably well-preserved site is thought to the greatest remnant of Roman life found in Spain.

  • Long fragment and parts of the theatre. This represented in such way that you can imagine comparing what you see with the information provided on foot of space.

  • Depending on your tastes may be obligatory or not. You can see from outside what little remains of the Roman Theatre and inside is a small museum that explains it and that is fast. You can see with the joint entrance to several monuments more.

  • An example of Roman times. To be found in the Plaza of La Seo and on the site of the old Roman Forum. Also see the remains of the temple, market stalls, pipes, and a sewer worth a look.  more »

  • This is a great archaeological​ site. I m so happy they didn't reconstruct much and where they did, they did so without ruining the authenticity of the historic remains. Yet the displays around the site, enables you to fill in the "gaps". The exhibition in the adjacent museum is also very well done. Thank you city council, for your vision and well executed project.
  • What an amazing find in this bustling city. So great to see such great history being preserved.
  • Wow! They've invested a huge amount of money in excavating the ruins and building a museum next to it to tell the story. Worth a trip if you like Roman ruins. Zaragoza is not over run with tourists so it feels like a real place. There are two other Roman excavations nearby that are smaller but also very well done.
  • Great how the have uncovered the mysteries of the past and brought it to life for all to see. I must of you are a fan of History especially roman
  • Worth visiting. I have never been to a Teatro before, so it was an amazing experience.

Where to stay in Zaragoza

When visiting this historical city, most visitors opt to stay in the old quarter, or Casco Viejo, for its convenient proximity to many of the city's iconic landmarks and compact network of local eateries, shops, and traditional architecture. The old quarter is located along the Ebre River meaning that you are only a scenic waterfront stroll away from the rest of the city's buzzing neighborhoods. Several newer hotels are located in the commercial zone centered around Gran Via, one of the city's main arteries, where plenty of shops and well-known restaurants line the buzzing streets. Alternatively, head to the University district for a mix of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and a vibrant nightlife, where accommodation tends to be a bit cheaper.
