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...

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

A 10 to 15 minute walk from Carmona, depending on your starting point. It is free entry and you are provided with a leaflet / map of the necropolis to help navigate around. It is well laid out and gives a good insight it what it was like in roman times! There is a small indoor area showing an exhibition... More

A small walking distance from the historical Carmona gate and bus stop to Seville. Free entry and map of the grounds with a friendly reception. The map is a little unintuitive with regard to the layout of the tombs but provides a good bit of information. Small museum of the area present with some background and a few items. Only... More

My wife and i spent an hour or so pottering around this site. We were provided with a leaflet in English and the entrance is free. We felt we had learnt quite a lot from our visit and would recommend it to others with an interest in discovering more about how the Romans lived and died.

This is very interesting, you see how the Romans treated their deceased, burial traditions, beliefs and veneration. The area is very well marked and explained, and leaves you with a strong feeling of another mentality and other views of life and death. Like most cemeteries it induces a certain peace and calm.
