Itálica, Sevilla: 7 reviews and 5 photos


The roman city of Italica was founded in 205 A.D. by Publio Cornelio Scipio the African during the war against Cartago (2nd. Punica war). Its great archeological importance is given due to its excellent preservation. An outstanding contribution is the brick and sand amphitheatre, its construction began in the first year of the Christian era and finished in the epoch of Trajano and Adriano, natives of this hispanic-roman city. Also there are numerous mythological mosaics of grat interest, the remains of thermal establishments, the theatre and clasical sculptures which are preserved in the museum at the entrance of the archeological site.
