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.

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.

  • Only discovered in the early 1970's, this museum deserves an hour or two of you time. There is a professionally produced film in English, among other languages, and displays of artifacts as well as th...  more »
  • I am not normally keen on Roman remains, but we were lured in because we had looked in from the outside viewing platform and had seen all the cats lurking. Unfortunately, the cats weren't there during...  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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
