Piles of rubble scattered across over a plateau at the end of a long windy road. There are several reasonable Roman buildings including the ampitheater- the views are speculating. We suggest afterwards continuing up to the "white villages" around Ronda.

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...More

Nice Roman site with a small amphitheater in very good condition; closed Monday and Tuesday; it’s possible to climb the fence by the entrance house if you get there when it's not open; the amphitheater is up the hill a couple hundred meters hidden behind...More

The road from Ronda to Acinipo (on top of a hill) leads you across gorgeous countryside. The Roman ruins are limited, being the Roman theatre and the magnificent views the main attraction. Nevertheless the visit is inspiring and well worth the trip.

More closed than open. It is even colder than Ronda so come prepared. If it is an open day, the last entry is at 14h00.

One of the highlights of our trip in southern Spain! A great and nicely preserved Roman amphitheatre with old baths on top of a hill. Theyre still doing excavations and repairs on the old cabins. We were the only visitors on a lovely sunny day...More

As everyone says, it was advertised as open, but it was closed. So like everyone else, we climbed over the fence. A climb through the remnants of dozens of houses, now jeeps of rubble, the Forum, and the stunning amphitheatre. Then the view! Wow. It...More

There are no staff to assist with information, at least not on the day we were there. Hours are on the web site for Acinipo but they are subject to change. However, you can climb over the fence anytime.
