We were tipped off about this remarkable place by our guide in Seville. He was absolutely right about the scale and importance of this Roman city which provided two Emperors (including Hadrian of the Wall). The mini-Colosseum is awesome and also one of the "Sets"...More

The ruins have been well maintained and offer great examples of life under the time of the Romans. Amphitheatre is under some renovation so was only partly accessible, once completed it should offer great views. The rest of the site has interesting mosaics with well...More

When leaving Seville do not miss this spot. No need to do a big tour. Just drop in and see a still standing Roman ampitheater, some amazing columns and frescos. There’s a cute quick lunch spot nearby!

As a Game of Thrones fan I went to see the filming location but I was totally amazed by the history and detail of the site. It goes far beyond it’s use as a film set. It was very quiet, barely five other people there....More
