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

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

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.

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
