The Roman theatre of Cartagena is a Roman theatre built between 5 BC and 1 BC in the city of Carthago Nova, now Cartagena. It had a capacity for some 7,000[1] spectators, and was in use until the 3rd century, after which several buildings were added on top of each other. In 1988 it was discovered by Dr. Sebastián Ramallo Asensio, a professor at the University of Murcia, and the archaeological excavations directed by him succeeded in exhuming it so that it could be visited as part of the Roman Theatre Museum. On 21st January 1999 it was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the category of monument.
