Currently, the Archaeological Area within the Archaeological Site of Carmona comprises, among other things, two remarkable built-up areas from Roman times (between 1st and 2nd centuries). Firstly, the Necropolis, considered one of the largest and best-preserved Roman funeral sites in the Iberian Peninsula, and secondly, the Amphitheatre, a venue used for entertainment. Both are located to the west on the city’s outskirts, spreading over approximately eight hectares.
Highlights include the historic character of certain buildings, such as the Tomb of the Elephant or the Tomb of Servilia; the spectacular funerary artefacts, which can be seen in the on-site Museum, as well as the fascinating landscape in the area.
Next to the Necropolis is the Amphitheatre, partially dug into the rock of the hill, taking advantage of the natural slope of the land, where gladiatorial games and other events that were typically performed in this type of building. Part of it was used as a necropolis.
