Roman thermae and Decumanus maximus

Roman Thermae and Decumanus

This is a completely new site of about 3,400 metres which will allow us to discover the Roman town of Baetulo in situ. The visit starts at the 1st century B.C. Thermae of the town, where all the rooms that made up the complex have been preserved. These are the atrium, the frigidarium, the tepidarium and the caldarium. The tour continues under present-day Font i Cussó Square, which is the area surrounding the Town’s Roman Forum. You will be able to see the remains of some buildings with shops at ground level as you walk along a side street where the drain has been preserved. Later on, the wide Decumanus Maximus, where we will find an adjacent shopping building, will lead us to the Cardo Maximus, which indicates the proximity of the forum. Other features are the remains of some constructions dating from the late Roman period such as a room, a mausoleum and a cistern. The whole area is spectacularly lit and animated with historical reconstruction elements and sound effects which help recreate the ancient town of Baetulo. Tactile displays for visitors with visual impairments are also available at the complex.

The visits are aimed at pre-school, primary school, compulsory and post compulsory secondary school groups, and the general public.
