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

Whilst staying near Calahonda (nearly 2hrs drive) we decided to visit this ruins after spotting them on a map. After looking on the website opening times were closed Monday, open 10-17 Tuesday to Saturday. We arrived 2.50pm on a tuesday to be told they were closed by a Spanish man who spoke no English. Opening times listed on window different... More

Acinipo is a Roman ruin – unfortunately not very well maintained (for obvious lack of funds) that gives us a glimpse of the Roman traces the Ronda area went through. Visiting Acinipo is always a delightful experience – you get to see some stunning views, the remains of an impressive amphitheater, and a nice 20 minute walk. Take a sandwich,... More

I truly enjoyed this outing that became a pleasant detour en route Sevilla. The site is easy enough to find. The landscape is spectacular. I love the sense of remoteness and being off track. An Eagle was gliding way above in the sky reminding me how fond the Romans were of that symbol. As suggested by others a visit to... More

The ruins are quite secluded and when we went we were the only visitors. It's free to visit which is always a bonus, but it could benefit from a small entry free or if it accepted donations. It's in need of maintenance, as in the summer the paths are overrun with prickly plants and there is poo absolutely everywhere. Goat... More

The ruins of what used to be a Roman town for soldiers, are free to visit, and there's not really a reason to charge people for it. Although, the theatre, the thermae and what probably was the commercial district or a part of the town with flats, are certainly worth a visit, the authorities should invest a little to improve...

Not very easy to find (I would describe it as being in the middle of nowhere), but very nice drive through the mountains and pueblos blancos. The site is not properly excavated, and only the theater and the baths are left to be seen. There is no information about the city on the site so read on Google before visiting.... More

We loved this site and enjoyed roaming around in complete privacy. It was even raining but the changing clouds and vistas were beautiful nonetheless. Very picturesque. We learned more about the site from an exhibit in Ronda's Palacio Mondragon.

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... More

I first began looking for this theatre in 1970. I had found one photograph of it, but no one seemed to know where it was. I finally found it in late 1972 at the end of a rocky road that wove around and continuously climbed uphill. When the road ended my friends and I looked to our left and saw... More
