I love your site.


Edificio excelente, a pesar de las goteras. La clausura de la parte más expresiva del yacimiento arqueológico, por obras de restauración, no se compensa ni con el museo ni con en resto de las ruinas, por lo que me he sentido defraudado con la visita. Todo el complicado sistema de acceso al yacimiento, injustificable en un domingo de enero con mínima afluencia de público, no ha hecho más que aumentar mi irritación, así como mi pérdida de tiempo, que no se habría producido de conocer esta circunstancia, ya que hubiera postpuesto mi visita a Medina Azhara (puetos a conseguir la pureza lingüistica podrían conservar el nombre en árabe, para mayor confusión) Ahora dudo que vuelva a visitarlo y menos recomendar su visita
