Wow .. That is the best way to describe these ruins. As far as the eyes can see their is architecture that was created by the Romans. It is Beautiful and Breath taking. I couldn't help but wonder the entire time visiting this area what else laid beneath me as I walked the streets.

We visited these ruins while on a day trip from Ronda. You will need a car or be on a tour to see them as I can't image there is any public transit and it is too far to walk. We did not have a guide, other than what we were given at the gate. Despite that it was worth... More

This Roman amphitheatre is situated just off a country road about ten miles from Ronda. If you are interested in Roman history it is worth a visit, and entrance is free. Although it was open when we arrived, I believe opening times are restricted to a few mornings a week, the site closing, like many other amenities in this part... More

By the look of these ruins built in the middle of nowhere perched on a steep hilltop, everything. Phenomenal ruins with almost unbelievable views from the summit. A bit like low flying!!

It is a 20 KMS drive from Ronda along a country road and well worth the trip. It is free to enter and a walk around the site which is on the side of a hill is covered with old ruins and is overgrown. The main attraction is the amphitheatre at the top of the hill and in its golden... More

Free entrance but no information but little to look at. Remains of a theatre and baths and lots of inexplicable piles of rocks. Go to Ocuri near Ubrique instead.

This place sits on top of a high hill, it has roman ruins, and celtic ruins as well. There are many mounds of stone, but no info, it is free. Closed on Mondays. There are some mosaics and a theater, and of course the foundations of a Roman town. I watched as a yew gave birth to a new born,... More

Acinipo, sometimes called 'Old Ronda'', is certainly worth a visit if you like excavations or just strolling around ancient sites in the countryside. Apart from a amphitheater with a connected building, not much is excavated. Scattered across a vast area are numerous piles of stones, some of which are recognizably man made. But Acinipo has a very nice location on... More

We arrived at this remote site when it was shrouded in cloud and drizzling. As the cloud cleared we could enjoy the magnificent views. Entrance is free and we climbed the grassy windswept hillside to the Roman theater. It is smaller than most we have seen but it is virtually a complete hemisphere. The ruins of the houses are just...

As Roman ruins go there is not a great deal to see at Acinipo, but it is a peaceful experience and a place to sit and reflect or just enjoy the view. We have been there twice. The first time was very enjoyable, sitting and looking down at hang gliders from our elevated position. We decided to return a couple... More
