  • The ruin is vast so bring your walking shoes and sunhat, if it is summer. Compared to other ruins, Mérida for example, there isn't a lot left standing. Copies of the original floor stone mosaics...

  • Fantastic museum and ruins!
  • The old city has been completely destroyed by events and time. But still worth to walk there and get the feeling of what Romans have been able to do....
