Interesting experience of the dark world of death an tombs. Cryptic tomb was the most interesting. Very few people and deserted attraction, perhaps a bit far from the old town. Ticket is free if you buy a ticket to Archaeology museum.

Totally fascinating. A short introduction with photographs and video within the museum then outside the amazing exhibitits revealing the paleochristian burial practices from 1st and 2nd centuries and the lay out of a Roman villa with unknown history. A full half day

This museum consists of two parts: the museum itself and the outdoor exhibition in situ. Access form Avenue de Ramon I Cajal down the steps. Half way down there's a ticket office and entry to the museum. Then a lovely walk along all the roman remains with all those sarcopaguses under some ugly roofs.

While the museum was well set up and information was readily available I couldn't help but feel under pressure to end my visit as one of the members of staff seemed to follow us around as we were the last people there despite being more than an hour until closing. Also maybe a bit on the boring side compared to... More

This museum is almost hidden under the road but it is a little gem. Packed into a small space, it contains a small selection of marble coffins and artefacts found at the site (the rest are at the archaeology museum), very cheap to enter only 3 euros per adult, 2 for a student and children are free and you get...
