As with many of the historical sites, well worth the visit, entrance is included in the 16 euro multi-ticket that gets you into most of the sites in Merdida.

On the edge of town this is worth a visit just for going down to see the old water cistern. There is sufficient information to give you a good idea of what life was like when it was inhabited. The view of the Roman bridge from the walls is very impressive.

Unlike most of the Roman Ruins the Moorish site is not as well preserved. The overall structure is very impressive, but the details are not too well defined.

Built in 835 during the Arab rule. Long walls - 10 metres high and almost 3 metres thick. 25 towers. Inside the alcazaba there's also an old rainwater tank. Interesting visit. There's also good view to Puente Romano from the walls and actually it is accessed through the gate close to the bridge.

Interesting for a quick visit but it was very hot when I went. Worth climbing up on top of the walls to get a view of the river and surrounding area. It is still being excavated, so lots of ongoing work. Go down the steep steps to the underground can send and see the goldfish in the water. Pity they don't have a cafe as a cold drink would have prolonged my visit.
