Ask a tomb!

I had the chance to take in Carmona today, including the Roman ruins, one of the most striking of which is the necropolis. This museum features a short tour which is guided by your favorite cartoon character, an unnamed talking coffin.

Across the street is an amphitheater which was half filled with water once per year for a staged naval battle. Apparently this town has been a strategic military location for almost three centuries. The town has a cultural record which readily shows this immense passage of time.
