Italica Roman Ruins Tour

20 reviews
Come with us and explore this magnificent piece of history right outside the Seville city limits. This Roman city was built in 206 B.C. and is one of the oldest Roman settlements in Spain. This thriving Roman metropolis was the birthplace of not one, but two Roman emperors, Trajan and Hadrian. During their reign, the city of Italica grew to become one of the largest exporters of grain and olive oil. With massive wealth flowing into the city, they were able to build a marvel. The 25,000 seat amphitheatre was one of the largest in the Roman empire and was the home of grand gladiator fights and the filming place of modern days Game of Thrones. Explore this unbelievable ancient Roman city that was a marvel of its time and learn about the amazing history of yesteryear.

The monastery is a re-work in progress. The place is easily accessible and off the beaten path. It is a quiet piece of regional history that should be on the list to see. We spent nearly two hours admiring the beauty and the peaceful nature of the place. The entrance is free and it is a cultural gem.

This monastery is authentic, interesting and besides that also free for EU-members. It is around 20 minutes walking to Italica, so not that far.

We did the 4 hour tour with Naturanda which included Italica and the monastery. This was an amazing good value led by encyclopaedic Enrique, who was entertaining and thoroughly grounded in his material. Italica wows with its mosaics and its amphitheatre, but the monastery is overwhelming in its awesome monumental beauty. The frescoes themselves are worth it. A 14th century Last Supper by Florentine artist, occupying a whole wall is totally unexpected and wonderful. The wooden alter pieces are among the finest I have seen. Enrique was full of stories about the family that has owned the monastery since its founding in 1301. Highly recommended!

We visited the monastery before walking on to the tremendous Roman ruins of Italica, as suggested by the Rough Guide. Although we were glad we'd done so, the warning I would like to give is that by doing things in this order you can be exposed to the incredible heat of the day by the time you get to Italica. On reflection, I would have done things in the opposite order, or simply got there earlier in the day, because we had to skip some of Italica due to the unbearable lunchtime heat (mid-September). However, the monastery is certainly worth a visit and was almost deserted when we went on a weekday morning. There are excellent English language information cards in each room so that you can understand what you are looking at, and it was free to enter. The bus M170a leaves from stand 41 at the far end of Seville's main bus station and stops on the main road outside the monastery, if you request it, before continuing to the ruins of Italica. Allow about half an hour to see the monastery.

Delightful and the female & only member of staff was charming. NOTE-DOOR ONLY OPENS ON HOUR 10-3. No audio-guide but leaflets in English positioned appropriately. Just loved it and just so sad that so much of it remains a virtual ruin & not available to the public. Amazing ceilings. So worth the visit.
