The necropolis is an incredible Roman site that was a very interesting place to visit, wasn't expecting much but found the site much larger than expected and the ruins were amazing, was surprised at the ladder at one of them you could climb down into others you just took the steps! Great little museum on site too.

Opposite the site is a amphitheatre site you can visit too.

There is just so much to see. It helps if you have a basic knowledge of Roman mythology and religion, but the site is interesting in its own right. Gives a very good idea of Roman Iberia.

If you are in Carmona you must visit this place. It is the Roman mark in Carmona city. Every thing is marked and at the end it is a small museum with artifacts.

Had the place to ourselves at 9 am. Very large area, not as expected. Great fun to be able to climb down into one of the tombs. Lots of different types of tombs to see (sounds weird, but v interesting). Shame the amphitheatre over the road was closed (not sure why as there were explanatory signs visible), but unhelpful staff weren't forthcoming as to why.

This is a really wonderful place, an eye opener onto Roman civilisation and the way of life in this part of Spain around 50BC to 100AD. The site is very sensitively laid out to allow visitors to get close to many of the funeral pits and in one of them be right up against wall painting from thousands of years ago. The museum is charming and the dispaly boards informative. The staff were great too. And all this for free!.Its a bit hard to find just off to the left as you enter Carmona from Seville and the entrance is opposite the more obvious Roman amphitheatre on the other side of the road. A great place to take older children and to bring the past to life for them

Quite honestly, visiting a Roman burial site would not usually be at the top of my 'must visit' list, but this was a fascinating experience in every respect. Firstly, it's a great walk from the Parador through the town to reach the necropolis. Secondly, the excavations are quite extensive. Thirdly, the museum is very informative (and should be visited before walking around the site). But fourthly, do make sure you catch the film - a really charming piece of history detailing the story of the founding of the 19th century archeological society that was responsible for the excavations. We expected to spend a few minutes here and ended up taking a good hour and a half. Don't miss it!

A 10 to 15 minute walk from Carmona, depending on your starting point.
It is free entry and you are provided with a leaflet / map of the necropolis to help navigate around.
It is well laid out and gives a good insight it what it was like in roman times! There is a small indoor area showing an exhibition of artefacts found on the site. The information boards are available in Spanish and English.

Well worth a visit over this large site of tombs and free to enter. Not difficult to get around and make sure you see the amphitheatre opposite.

Followed the leaflet provided and were struck by how close one could get to the remains which were well interpreted.
Felt very close to the Romans and would highly recommend an hour there.

It is something that I wanted to see in Carmona, but the devil, or the weather or just my tough luck crossed our plans again. We had the fate of Markus Bloggs, another reviewer. We found the Anfiteatro y Necropolis Romano closed, just like him, and a big padlock on the gate. In the small museum where we went to look around and enquire, the answer was -yes it closed, and they don't know when it will be open.
Although the museum was small but well-arranged, and the staff was accommodating, even if we didn't speak the same language.
