Beautiful site. Very modern building around the excavation. There are some videos that give you a good impression of the ancient times and how the place looked like and how rhe people lived. And the good state of the mosaics are awesome.

A superb hunting mosaic well displayed and protected in the context of a luxurious Roman villa. If you have only a moderate interest in the roman world, this is worth a visit.

I have to admit that we visited the Villa Romana la Olmeda a little bit on the off-chance. We had read about it in the Rough Guide, just happened to be passing on the motorway, and saw the huge signs directing us on a very...More

This is not only an outstanding bit of Roman history and restoration, it is about the only really worthwhile tourist attraction in the neighborhood. It's not very easy to find --by some quirk of bureaucracy, the location is only signposted for people traveling from the...More

I came across a sign "Villa Romana" on the way from Burgos to Coruna and followed the signs. It was well worth the detour - fine mosaics and generally good state of preservation. It's off the beaten track, but if you're in the area, it's...More
