Quite honestly, visiting a Roman burial site would not usually be at the top of my 'must visit' list, but this was a fascinating experience in every respect. Firstly, it's a great walk from the Parador through the town to reach the necropolis. Secondly, the...More

Overall this is a very interesting site and it's free entrance which makes it hard to complain. I would suggest a touch-up on the signs and the overall experience though. Now the graves are very interesting, but it could be an even nicer experience with...More

This placce is just "OK" You'll see a lot better Roman in ruins in, well, Rome. Honestly, if I had to do it again, I would skip this place.

There is no sigh on the gate to say what it is! The first signs that you see focus on what you can’t do (including photography!!). Staff in reception helpful. Security guards miserable. Much more signage needed. Three numbered exhibits were closed off with no...More

These were interesting old ruins and worth a look but be prepared to walk back 500 Meters or so from city bus stop.It is old and historic and great that some still exists from so long ago.

I saw it first time, and it was great surprise for me. I've never imagine that something that old can still exist

The map given out by Carmona’s tourist office (located under the Sevilla gate of the huge fortress tower) shows the location of the Roman Necropolis clearly. The site is about 600 -700 metres west of the main bus stop on Paseo del Estatuto, or about...More

We were visiting the place because the Roman age is interesting. If you also want to experience the history in person then it is a good place to visit.

This is situated closer to the newer part of the city. It is free of charge on entry and there is a small museum at the reception area. There are notices giving information on the artefacts and excavations, dating back to Hellenic times.

This is a pleasant walk around marked paths and interesting archeological site, with a small museum in the reception building. The entrance fee is minimal, 2 Euros each I think. The entrance to the site is difficult to find, you need to drive through the...More
