Andalucia’s cultural, heritage and architectural wealth comes from the melting pot of the different cultures that have populated our region over the centuries. In each corner of this community, you can see the remains left by our ancestors and that allow us to see what their life was like in different historical eras.
In Andalucia, one of the most prominent historic phases of greatest splendour came during the Roman Empire. The Roman spirit took hold of the southern Iberian Peninsula since between III B.C. and the 5th century, the Romans contributed buildings that were deserved by the land that provided them with the raw materials they needed to hold onto the magnificence that characterized them. And so a street, Vía Augusta, which connected our province with Rome, the imperial capital, was deservedly enjoyed.
The Roman legacy is totally and absolutely incalculable and can be found in each and every one of the aspects that makes Andalucia the cosy and open land it is today. Temples, aqueducts, towns, mosaics, amphitheatres and theatres are just a small sample of some of the remains that have prevailed over time. So, be sure to visit these Roman vestiges that we will show you in the peninsular south and that will take you through time to the most profound and sumptuous aspect of the empire that conquered half the world.
