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... More

This is a really wonderful place, an eye opener onto Roman civilisation and the way of life in this part of Spain around 50BC to 100AD. The site is very sensitively laid out to allow visitors to get close to many of the funeral pits and in one of them be right up against wall painting from thousands of years... More

Overall this is a very interesting site and it's free entrance which makes it hard to complain. I would suggest a touch-up on the signs and the overall experience though. Now the graves are very interesting, but it could be an even nicer experience with some more explanation / interactivity (which I guess was there before but now not functioning... More

Quite honestly, visiting a Roman burial site would not usually be at the top of my 'must visit' list, but this was a fascinating experience in every respect. Firstly, it's a great walk from the Parador through the town to reach the necropolis. Secondly, the excavations are quite extensive. Thirdly, the museum is very informative (and should be visited before... More

Very informative and excellent museum and site...You feel the past unlike a lot of ruins where they just are..I actually had a sudden feeling of sadness at this burial ground as if the grief of a death had imprinted the particular corner of the site...Very nicely laid out path and a lot to see in about an hour...Carmona has seen...

Not too far from Puerta de Sevillia. Start w the video for an explanation or at least visit the media room where it's outlined along the wall. It's just unfathomable how old this site is.

A well preserved Roman amphetheatre and extensive necropolis. The best part was the informative video - this is must if you are to get the most from the visit.

The entire site is fenced and locked on the day we visited. No access at all. It does look like they are doing some kind of construction along the road, but the gate was locked so this detour to Cormona to see this specific site was a waste of time. Check ahead before you get off the A-4 on your... More
