  • Being the largest easily accessible Roman cisterns these are not so well known and famous among foreign tourists. As I've been told by the cutest guide in whole Andalusia, we were only second non-spanish speaking visitors (it is probably sad, but I don't know if cisterns would benefit from higher number of visitors).

  • It Is a fantastic place very well preserved to be buried, are a ruins worth visiting for being the second most important in all Europe and thirds of its category worldwide. It Is A pity that they are not more valued and given the diffusion they deserve, but still can be visited without agglomerations. The Local guide is very nice and friendly, it is amazing that such a small locality is endowed with this infrastructure only as a use for public baths. Inside The monument there is a wonderful viewpoint overlooking the whole countryside. It'S The second time I'm going and I'm still impressed.
