The Roman city of Itálica, located in the Lower Guadalquivir, played an important strategic role both politico-military, as well as economically, during the High Roman Empire. Proof of this is that it reached an area of approximately 52 hectares.
The origins of the Archaeological Ensemble of Itálica date back to 206 BC, when General Publius Cornelius Scipio, in the context of the Second Punic War, defeated the Carthaginians at the Battle of Ilipa and established a detachment of legionaries on the Cerro de San Antonio, place where a turdetana population already existed since the 4th century BC.
Although at first both communities coexisted in this space close to the Guadalquivir, soon the Roman element imposed its social and political ways.

What To Expect
Archaeological Ensemble of Italica
We will visit the first Roman city of the Iberian Peninsula through a tour of the well-preserved remains of different houses and "shops" of the time.
We will know the majestic Roman amphitheater, built outside the walls and that gives us an image of the importance that the city had for the entire Baetica region. Cradle of Trajan and Adriano.
The visit has a total tour of about two hours. Starting in the city and ending in the amphitheater.
Visitors, if they wish, at the end can enjoy a projection on an idealization of what was Itálica from its foundation. Hot springs, houses, bread ovens, mosaics and a multitude of infrastructures of more than two thousand years await us in this interesting and unknown city that great stories have given to posterity.
