Friday is excursion-day! The Roman Amphitheatre in Málaga

Another great initiatve from the Language school.

The city has lots of history (and I won't bore you with that) but parts of the old town are clear evidence to the Roman and Arabic influence in the city.
Apparently the amphitheatre was discovered in 1951 by accident while planning to construct a garden by the “Casa de la cultura” (“Culture-house”). It has a radius of 31 meters and a height of 19 meters, and thrones majestically right in the middle of the old part of town together with the Moorish fortress Alcazaba.

In my opinion, it definitely is among the things that give the city character!
