Roman Necropolis Museum (Museo de la Necropolis Romana) Tours

This museum and historic site offers a glimpse into the ancient history of Andalusia, back to a time when it was first inhabited by Romans. Stepping outside of an old walled enclosure, there are many excavated sites to explore. Visitors have the chance to see the Puerta de Sevilla gate, an amphitheater, and of course the funeral and graveyards areas themselves. Many of the tombs here are actually family mausoleums, first discovered by French archaeologists in the late 19th century. There are also traces of ancient mining and pottery facilities and equipment.

The necropolis is situated on a hill below the small town of Carmona. Surrounded by Cypress trees, there are still nearly 1,000 family tombs that date back to as early as the second century BC. Often frescoed and containing rare funeral urns, the archeological site has been well preserved. A tour of the grounds is an insightful look at daily urban life of the past.

Practical Info

Located just outside the city of Seville, the Roman Necropolis Museum is in the town of Carmona. You can get there by walking 10-15 minutes from the center of town, or take a bus from nearby Sevilla. The museum is open daily except for Mondays.
