The abandonment of the Roman city of Acinipo in Ronda

The abandonment of the Roman city of Acinipo in Ronda

The Hispania Nostra Association, founded in 1976 with the aim of defending heritage, has included four monuments in the province of Malaga on its red list, the Roman site of Acinipo, the Baroque house of Atarazanas, the Cortijo del Moro in Benalauria and the convent of Nuestra Señora de la Consolación de Villanueva de Algaidas.

One of the most worrying is undoubtedly the Roman site of Acinipo, a city from the 1st century that has a well-preserved theater with a capacity for 2,000 spectators.

The Ronda City Council has commented that the deterioration of the site is evident, while recalling that the project to create an interpretation center has been paralyzed for more than 10 years.

Acinipo was an important Roman city from the 1st century to the beginning of the 3rd century when it began to fall, definitively giving up its dominion of the area in favor of Arunda (Ronda) in the 4th century. The Roman city had, in addition to the theater, a walled enclosure and a temple that stood the test of time until the 9th century.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
