Cartagena Roman Theatre Museum Ticket
With this ticket, you'll be immersed in Carthago Nova's Roman past while you observe the archaeological pieces found in and around the Roman Theatre of Cartagena.
The museum is composed of different ancient buildings incorporated into the structure, such as the Riquelme Palace or the church of Santa Maria, from the medieval period. The visit starts in the first room, located in the palace, which is used for temporary exhibitions and where you can learn about the history of the theatre. An underground corridor will take you to the room where the most emblematic objects found during the excavations are displayed, such as jewellery, statues or vessels.
Then you'll arrive at the tunnel that passes under the medieval church and you'll find the perfect end to your visit: the Roman Theatre of Cartagena, one of the biggest in Spain. You'll be able to see the remains of its stage front, the orchestra, reserved for patricians and rulers, and the cavea, where the plebs sat.
This theatre had a capacity for 7000 people and was used by the citizens of Carthago Nova until the 3rd century. Thanks to the archaeological excavations carried out in the 80's and the design of the architect Rafael Moneo, today it is possible to enjoy this tour of Cartagena's glorious era.
