We stopped on the way from Ronda to Setenil and although after checking opening times/days there was no one there, I guess due to time of year(late March). Normally I would have left but felt emboldened by other reviewers who said they climbed the gate...More

We drove from Ronda to Acinipo to see the Old Ronda, over 5000 years old with the remains of a Roman theatre. I had seen the details in the Palazio Mondragon. I had obviously read the opening days wrong or they had changed. We found...More

Stunning views from the remains of this 1st century Roman city. It was closed the day we were there, but we climbed the fence as others recommended. Amphitheater is somewhat restored, otherwise it's mostly piles of stones on the hillside.The ruins are not as impressive...More

The excavations of Acinipo ruins is one of the finest ancient Roman sites you'll find in this region; abondoned houses with mysterious rooms, ruins; the amphitheatre has been much restored; you enjoy a nice view to the mountains.

If you like history or want some fabulous 360 degree views this is worth the drive. If it's not open just climb the fence. There are old Roman baths (termas) and the amphitheater (teatro). Learned later the piles of stones were houses that farmers later...More

incredible C1st BC amphitheatre at Acinipo (Ronda la Vieja) fabulously intact wall, 360 degree views, cover up or use suncream because there is no shade. Unbelievably quiet for a Roman ruin of this calibre. Highly recommended - be prepared for a load of 'Gladiator' quotes.

A must if you are in the area. The amphitheatre is spectacular and you can easily imagine the building used 2000 years ago. Well restored. If you go further up the hill you can look over the wall at a fantastic view towards the west....More

As Roman sites go there isn't really very much to see, though the remains of the theatre ARE impressive. The wonder is that the Romans ever managed to create a town on the windswept site, now so empty apart from heaps of stones from their...More
