  • 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 an architectural treasure in a place like no other. Totally recommendable. The best guide.
  • Fantastic place, we have so many nearby treasures that we do not know. I highly recommend your visit. Best of all the guide, Francisco Javier, it shows that he likes his job, it is impossible to explain it better. Thank you very much, I have a very good taste of this wonderful town and its history. I will definitely be back!
  • A very interesting place. The guide who accompanied us (Iris) explained everything in a pleasant and simple way. A success to have gone down this route.
  • On 05-26-22 we phoned for the visit at 17:05, they told us there was no time. Go, visit and return. According to the internet, the duration is 45' and they close at 6:00 p.m. We meet at the office at 5:15 p.m. Same excuse. The office is next to the entrance to the cisterns, 1' walk. He just had to ask us to finish at 18.00. At 17:45 he had already closed the office and was out on the street. I don't know if this person does it for pleasure or is paid. In any case, the desire to work and promote the town is conspicuous by its absence.
