Roman Theatre, Cartagena in Costa Cálida
The Roman Threatre in Cartagena, was built between 5 and 1 BC, as has been proven by the dedication of the edifice to Gaius and Lucius Caesar, grandsons of Augustus, who had designated them as his successors.
The theatre had a capacity of some 7,000 spectators. It was divided horizontally in three parts (ima, media and summa cavea), which in turn divides into radial sectors (five in the upper part, seven in the medium) all of which are open to the public to explore.
The Roman Theatre Museum is situated on the Town Hall Square (Plaza del Ayuntamiento), one of the most important in the city, situated a few metres away from the city port.
Arrival at the entrance to the museum is achieved on foot, since the two streets that lead to the square (Calle Mayor and Plaza Héroes de Cavite) are pedestrianized. There are ample car parking spaces and parking in the area is open 24 hours a day.
