Museo del Teatro de Caesaraugusta, Zaragoza
(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
After the sun goes down, a virtual performance is projected on the stage at Museo del Teatro de Caesaraugusta. 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.

  • I recommend visiting it in combination with the other three points of the route caesaraugusta to be able to get an idea of the Roman zaragoza in its entirety

  • Don't pass because the price seemed a tad high and not it seemed to us that we were to see much more of what is emerging from the outside, where you can see pretty well characteristics and magnitude of the theatre. This is striking for its dimensions and for being in the heart of Zaragoza where is surrounded by houses from the end of the 20TH century. Although it is interesting, I thought it was less conspicuous than other Roman theatres I've seen like Merida or Segobriga.

  • hi museum that is interesting but apart from the outer theatre which you can view without entering the museum there is not much you will miss but at only 4 euros its worth a visit,again like the goya ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Worth visiting. I have never been to a Teatro before, so it was an amazing experience.
  • This is by far the best of the 4 places on the Caesaraugusta trail (but since it only costs a little more to see the other three, I would recommend getting the full ticket). It has a great 15 minute video describing the archaeological works which is very information (and inadvertedly entertaining in its narration!). The museum is wonderful and provides great context to the ruins of the theatre, explaining many details of the construction as well as of the theatrical aspects.
  • It is a fantastic place and the children enjoy the visit. There is also a café where you can have breakfast and snacks.

  • The Museum explains very well to level audiovisual history, being a pass a couple of hours there imagining what that was... In addition the price of admission is adjusted and pleasant attention.
