One of the highlights of our trip in southern Spain! A great and nicely preserved Roman amphitheatre with old baths on top of a hill. Theyre still doing excavations and repairs on the old cabins. We were the only visitors on a lovely sunny day...More

As everyone says, it was advertised as open, but it was closed. So like everyone else, we climbed over the fence. A climb through the remnants of dozens of houses, now jeeps of rubble, the Forum, and the stunning amphitheatre. Then the view! Wow. It...More

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

There are no staff to assist with information, at least not on the day we were there. Hours are on the web site for Acinipo but they are subject to change. However, you can climb over the fence anytime.
