Worth a visit but needs improved tourist info

The site is quite small compared with others such as Segóbriga (also in Cuenca province), but nonetheless it has many buildings. Some of them are still digs and would need investment to show them fully. For instance, one of the domus has wall paintings that are covered to protect them from rain, and by showing them the site would be even more worth it.

The views of the reservoir are nice, you can even see the ruins of the old spa "La Isabela. The map you get with the ticket could use an improvement.

For Roman aficionados
Sep 2014 • Couples
This is a site for aficionados of Roman antiquities. Its origins are before the Christian era and it developed into Roman posh: at least three very large country houses were here on the hilltop walled site. You have to find your way to Cañaveruelas, a sleepy little town, and then discover a sign pointing to the site along what quickly becomes a dirt road, about 3 kilometres long. Once there, a chain and a sign saying Prohido el paso (No entry) confront you, but if like us you have a sudden and fortuitous attack of sign blindness, you walk over the chain and up the hill to the site. On the Sunday morning we were there, several Spaniards did the same. The site overlooks the extensive Buendía reservoir, not there in Roman times of course, but even then the river valley would have provided a stunning view. If you know about Roman buildings, a little imagination will quickly people the ruins for you. One of the country houses is undergoing development to show what it would have been like in its heyday. Just outside the site, a stone-enclosed spring has a visigothic cross incised over the lintel: quite amazing.
