We walked down the Calle de Alcazabilia and on our left a fence excluded us fro construction work at the base of a hill. Midway up the hill was the Alcazar and at the summit the Gibralfaro. The work at the base was at the site of the Roman Theater. Work has been going on here for many years as they excavate and recreate it. We were told that Malaguenos hope to turn it into a summer concert venue (as many other cities have done with their Roman Theater). Much stone is new because the theater was used as a quarry source for the Alcazaba above. We could not go in the theater but took pictures through the fence. We did not visit the Alcazaba because we were assured we would experience a better one soon in Seville.
