Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very lucky to be staying in a villa that was over looked by this magical city. So it was only right that we took a trip there. Although the houses and buildings are no longer standing the baths and amphitheatre are still there. The views are also pretty outstanding!

As an archaeologist I naturally read up on the place, so we could enjoy the whole of the site, not only the (although magnificent) view from the theatre. The theatre itself is great, too bad they don't have any signs, maps etc. with explanation. I can imagine if you're no archaeologist you can't make anything out of the structures other than the theatre.
Most people who go up here are aware of the Roman ruins, but there are also some Bronze age structures (1,100-750 BC), circular hut-structures near the car park, well worth seeking out if you know what you are looking for. (There are actually structures, rounded and rectangular, from several phases of the Bronze age. Also evidence of a Neolithic settlement)

The theatre itself is at the top of the escarpment and seated about 2,000 people and was build between 65-200 AD.

The bathy area was partially restored in more recent times.

The city of Acinipo was about 32 hectare and minted its own money, so really not a minor city!
I think people would be willing to pay a small fee if they were provided with a small leaflet with some explanation of the site or maybe a sign or two on the spot!

We drove here to see it as we couldn't find any opening hours online. When we arrived it looked amazing, but unfortunately is closed on Mondays/Tuesdays. I've added a photo of current opening hours.

From what we could see over the fence, I think it would definitely be worth a visit. Unfortunately we are only here until Tuesday so won't be able to check it out.

A superb example of Roman brilliance and the power of their empire, How on earth did they find this place, how long did it take to build it, its staggering in its strategic location, make sure to walk to the top of the entire hill to get some idea of the genius behind why they picked this point.
A lovely 20 minute drive from Ronda.
Its a steep walk from the car park.
Bring water it gets very hot and dry.
The silence is stunning.

There are more impressive Roman remains other places, certainly, but the theater is still impressive, and more importantly for me, I am often here alone. The village was built as a retirement destination for elderly former officers and their families, and the views are impressive. I live nearby, and love to stop in alone, or with friends, to see the view, and commune with the small herd of sheep and two donkeys who graze there. I think this is a wonderful place where almost nobody bothers to go.

If you are visiting Ronda, well worth a drive out to see the Roman Ruins. Impressive views across the two valleys. Site has some details in English. Plenty of parking and free to enter. Toilets also available. Also consider this alongside a trip to the winery Bodega Dona Felisa

This is a very nice historical site but be aware of fruit flies. One of the many roman ruins in the region of Andalusia, this one offers a nice view of an ancient amphitheater. Equally informative for visitors interested in history and archeology. Free entrance and paper guide provided at the gate. We would have enjoyed to have spent more time there, but with so many flies we left just after taking few pictures.

Lost in mountains of Andalucía this is a little visited gem. Ruins are exactly that - mounds and mounds of ruins on beautiful rolling hillside lead up to a fairly well preserved amphitheater that sat 2,000 spectators (so imagine how large the city must have been!)- The large area is now fenced but admission is free. At the entrance there is an employee who shares plastic covered tourist information which must be returned after visit. Easy uphill walk but not good for handicapped. There is a clean bathroom on grounds. Beautiful views, swooping vultures, an amphitheater and remnants of Roman baths. After the ruins it is only a 7 km drive to Setenil de las Bodegas with its houses and shops tucked into caves. Interesting place for lunch but restaurants in Setenil do not take reservations so expect competition for a table on weekends!

Visited the old Roman town of Acinipo, about 20km from Ronda. So interesting, even part of the original orchestra floor can be seen at the amphitheatre. Walk to the top just above the amphitheatre and you will be rewarded with the most stunning view in andalucia ( and we have had breathtaking views staying in gaucin village). There is also the old Roman baths/spa to see here. Free entry. The road up to the Roman ruins was stunning, with vineyards and fields of sunflowers . Only need an hour or so to walk round

read other reviews on trip advisor and decided to drive up from Marbella.It was a bit further than we thought and it would be very easy to miss the pink sign directing you off the main road.It was then about 4 miles up a lane through beautiful countyside.The ruins were very impressive but the views were outstanding.You need walking shoes and the ability to walk uphill.They let dogs enter on a lead.It is Free and there are toilets.
