As someone who taught History and visited Hadrians Wall Roman remains many times I was thrilled to visit this site and see how much of it remains. As usually happens in Spain there have been some revisions which some archaeologists would find hard to accept but the site itself had enough of the original to be astonished at the skill... More

We had a look round the Visitors Center/Reception which was good. The actual site is quite a long walk from this center - the path is good but long. This was too long for us in 37C heat, so bear that in mind if you want to visit. Why the Visitors Center is so far from the site - we... More

Didn't get to see the site as it was closed (around 2.30 pm) but the small museum looked nice. Crazy opening hours. Beautiful area, and only 5 minutes off the motorway.

When you step into the same sands where gladiators fought or stand where hundreds of people stood seeing plays, it is impossible not to feel going backwards in time. The park is very well maintained, the visit well organised and the entrance fee adequated. The sole drawback is the lack of signalization to reach the park, but with a GPS... More

Prior to this visit I wouldn't believe, but when I visit segobriga I felt travelling backwards in time. The felling that you have when stepping into the same sands where gladiators fight or standing in the forum is exhilarating. The tour is well mounted and the archeological Park is well maintained. Adequated entry fee. The major drawback is the lack... More

The Roman ruins at Segóbriga are quite impressive - very well conserved and extensive. Our guide explained the history of the area in great detail and gave us plenty of time to poke around, take pictures and ask questions. The museum at the entrance and the short film were very informative - definitely take the time to see the film... More

An absolutely fantastic site. We went over the Easter weekend so it was pretty busy and there was a long queue to get in. I thought that the information displays were excellent. Unfortunately the cafe was closed and we were running low on water so we did not stop off at the museum. Another time I would take a picnic,... More

This site is extensive with lots to interest. The museum is a good introduction for what you are about to see, with a short film with English sub titles. Why they built it so far from the site I am not sure, but its about a 15 minute walk each way, so take water in the summer heat. Cost is... More

Good for anyone who likes ruins, those who are interested in archeology, and fans of "Gladiator": the site has a small but interesting display interpreting the Roman town, and its importance in the wider Roman Empire. The ruins, especially the threatre and ampitheatre are worth seeing. The remains of the town are on a hilltop with an extensive baths complex... More

I have visited several Roman sites in other countries, and while this one is not spectacular, I still found it to be very interesting - particularly the theatre and amphitheater. It is definitely worth the short drive from A3.
