It would be better to offer free entry. especially during the preparations for the Feria with all these removable bleachers.
This is a beautifully well preserved Roman relic. I just wish they didn't put the modern stand in it. But it is used for event today so it makes sense. It just detracts from the ambiance. more »
A really cool place, would recommend to see as you can tell there is a lot of history here. Has a great view from the top and I would love to watch a show there sometime. I wish they kept more of the olden style of stands rather than the more modern look it has. Overall a great place to see if your in the area.
Some awesome history here, it was not just an amphitheater, was once a town built in side during the dark ages, also hold bull fights here for the festival. the ticket you buy will also get you in the other roman sights so it’s a good price. Worth a look inside Or just have coffee in one of the cafes that surround it and just take in nearly 2000 years of history, Not so many tourists and it’s also famous for van goch painted 200 paintings at ales
