built almost entirely on the ruins of the Roman city Itálica
towards the end of the 16th Century, and occupies the ancient
city´s original nucleus. A major part of Itálica unfolds in the
subsoil of the town´s historical centre. The city, founded by
Escipion in the year 206 B.C., was in fact the first Roman city
in the Iberian peninsula. Today we can admire remains of
extraordinary value: its houses with beautiful mosaics, still
paved streets, original sewers, thermae and, above all, a
magnificent amphitheatre, the Roman Empire´s third largest in
capacity. Likewise, the monastery San Isidoro del Campo is also
worth highlighting, housing extraordinary 17th and 18th Century
works of art.
