Guided tour in the two musealize patrician houses of the Roman city of Baetulo, the House of the Dolphins and the House of the Ivy, which allows you to discover how the city’s elites lived at the end of the 1st century BC, enriched by the production and wine marketing.
The House of the Dolphins preserves several rooms located around the atrium, other rooms related to the peristyle or garden and a work area for wine production. Also noteworthy are the high-quality mosaics, as well as the remains of original murals.
In the House of the Ivy you can see a work area with wine tanks and several rooms distributed around an atrium. It also includes some singularities such as the oecus (summer dining room), of large proportions with original pavements of tiled opus signinum, or a section of the street (cardo maximus) that separated the two houses. In this domus the three visuals stand out especially. One that explains the production and marketing of the wine that generated so much wealth for the city of Baetulo, another that immerses the visitor in the atrium of the domus and a third that brings us closer to food in Roman times, from the raw material until the end of the banquet.
Both houses have touch modules for the blind people.
