The most beautiful setting for 150 years of history

The Romea Theatre is one of the most important cultural references in the city and stands in the Plaza de Julián Romea, a famous Murcian actor considered one of the greatest glories of the national theatre.

The theatre has undergone various restorations due to the fires it suffered in the 19th century

The building, opened in 1862 under the name of Los Infantes Theatre, was then renamed the Soberanía Popular Theatre and finally Romea Theatre, after the actor died. The building suffered during the 19th century two fires (1877 and 1899), leaving behind just the walls. The reconstruction works after the fires and the important rehabilitation suffered in 1985 is the reason why this monumental theater to have been inaugurated four times.
