  • After long time wanting to know this Archaeological Park, I could finally take my Thorn and know him. Surprised me greatly to find some mosaics of this size and quality in the middle of la sagra Toledo. They are probably of the most impressive we have in Spain. The park consists of 3 buildings that you can visit and the interpretation centre, where you put a video presentation, are explanatory models and you can enjoy some temporary exhibitions. We were lucky to bump us with a guide who kindly explained to us in detail the rooms. The truth is that the visit is well worth, especially if you like culture and mythology Roman (represented in the mosaics of the House of Maternus, the main building of the Park). However, I cannot help but be critical to see certain things. I dislike it quite see how in our country, where we have an important heritage and cultural wealth, we are terribly bad in marketing efforts (to make it) and almost worst yet in the care and maintenance of the same work. The Archaeological Park of Carranque is a clear example of this. A unique place in Spain with a very high historical value and gives the impression of being mounted hastily and improvised way. I am aware that to be 1,400 years old ruins, these will not be in perfect condition. However, I think that many times both the content and the continent. The House of maternal this within a ship that is more like a straw dryer. Something HORRIBLE that left enough charm to the place. In any other country in Europe the regional and national Governments would have done important work conditioning (and even reconstruction) for the enjoyment of the people. I hope to go back and see that this "solar with Roman ruins" has become an archaeological Park of truth.

  • After crossing the Guadarrama River via a bridge with wooden flooring, one gets to a place with hidden wonders, a visit to the past of the Iberian peninsula. A Roman villa farm, with its olive groves, vineyards and forest. With a main house, where lived the dominos with his family, with the typical characteristics of the Roman stately homes. Highlighting the beauty of soils, all of mosaics, made with a few tiny tesserae and depicting mythological scenes with a beauty that impresses. In addition there are other remains of buildings, mausoleum, palatial building. Later in Visigothic times become Church. Even perceived Islamic past

  • Really worthwhile if you are a lover of history and, if not, it is a highly recommended site, visit is precious, mosaics are fascinating, and the fact to be contemplating a work that takes us back in time more than 1600 years, deserves. Re-fuel

  • The history of Roma in Spain. Amazing mosaics not to say as magnificent columns brought from Italy. Impressive place. Occasionally they do re-enactments set in place and time.

  • The ruins are amazing a few kilometres from Madrid, but the condition of the Park is regrettable... including cover leaks that are oxidizing some mosaics. A site penalty.

  • The Archaeological Park is 5 Km of Carranque, separated from the urban area, so from the moment that makes the car in the parking lot, not hear the slightest noise: throughout the visit you can enjoy only the sound of birds. Highly recommended for a quiet and calm trip. There is much to see.
