Museum of Lisbon – Roman Theatre

Discover a section of the Museu de Lisboa which shows the theatre built on the castle hill during the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula.

After a long and difficult process of restoring and identifying the remains, there is a new museum to visit in Lisbon: the Roman Theatre. Part of the Museu de Lisboa, it shows the city as it has never been seen before on the south side of the castle hill. It is possible to visit the theatre, which consists of Roman ruins discovered under the rubble of the great earthquake of 1755. Built in the year of Emperor Augustus, it was abandoned in the 4th century AD and remained buried until 1798. Nowadays, you can see the identifiable stage, orchestra and many of the seats. Enjoy a unique experience and a journey back through the centuries, amid the streets of Alfama.
