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.

We really enjoyed our trip to the necropolis. The display material inside is good and the walk around the tombs is brilliant - you can even climb down a ladder into one of them. And it's free!

I knew something of the Roman culture, but this is an in-depth study of Roman life and culture with clear evidence. Do not miss it if you can give it the time it merits

Necrópolis de las cuevas.

After we have seen the Iglesia and torre de la Merced, we went uphill and turned to the University, this to pick-up our car. Then we turned left and tan we turn to our right into the second Street on our right, you will see the indication panel. You will have to turn into a dirt road and a bit further you can park the car, and move around by walking. This location is known as the "las Cuevas de Osuna", or the “Necropolis de Urso”, it is one of the most important archaeological sites of the “Hispania Romana”.
On this location you will be able to see historic graves into the rocks, a Roman Theatre etc. So this was the last location of our walk through the historic entre of Osuna. We do hope you have enjoyed your walk.

Most of the graves are underground, and only a steep staircase can be seen. However, several graves have been opened up, especially the larger and more interesting ones. One can descent via ladder into one of the smaller ones with niches for the urns. The 2 lager tombs really worth seeing are the tomb of the elephant, which likely was a temple rather than a tomb, and had a statue of an elephant inside; and the Sevilliana tomb, named after the female statue found here. This was a large courtyard with columns as well as a cupola. Sadly, some of the other interesting tombs are closed to the public. There is a small museum displaying some of the finds, such as statues and parts of the frescoes. Across the road there are the remains of the amphitheatre, but those can only be visited on Sunday mornings.
