One of those sights that nothing really prepares you for. The size and massiveness of the construction really is impressive. Even more impressive when you consider how long ago it was built. Worth visiting and preserving for future generations.

Really impressive with well-explained information boards. Buy a ticket that includes all of the Roman sites.

Extensive Roman ruins made for a very interesting few hours. The lady in the ticket booth nearly de-railed our day by being quite unfriendly and very unhelpful. I speak reasonable Spanish, but couldn't understand what she kept reciting, rapid fire. Asking her (in Spanish) to speak a little slower only resulted in her laughing in my face and telling her colleagues to listen in. The queue was out the door but that didn't mean anything to her. Eventually I realised she was asking me if I wanted to pay extra for a guided tour, but with sooo many words. Anyway, ignore the attitude and enjoy the site, it's impressive.

We have visited a number of Roman Ruins all over Europe and Morocco and thought that this amphitheatre was right up there with the best of them. We paid for our ticket last night at one of the other venues (and got them for half price because we asked nicely as Australian seniors) so were able to basically walk straight in ahead of a HUGE queue waiting to buy theirs. The amphitheatre is part of a huge complex that also contains the Roman Theatre and a suggested route for your visit takes you up, along and through the amphitheatre. It has plenty of signage in English. A fantastic visit.

The entry to the amphiteatre is included with the theatre and the monument is well preserved and not overcrowded (we visited fairly early before it got too hot) on site you also see a stretch of Roman road, latrines, an unidentified room with wall paintings and other archaeological sites. The Roman house next to the amphitheatre is currently closed (2017)
