If you visit this archaeological centre, you’ll walk down the streets of the ancient Roman city of Valentia on a trip back in time from the Visigothic and the Islamic city… to the 15th century. 2000 years of history in a 2000 sqm underground tour.
You’ll be able to stroll along paved ancient Roman streets, admire one of the oldest Roman baths still preserved, and discover the ancient burial sites of that time and even the remnants of a civil war that totally destroyed the city at the hands of the troops of Pompey. You’ll find the origin of the devotion to Saint Vincent Martyr, the patron saint of Valencia, and you’ll also learn about how garum was produced, the famous Roman sauce made with fish guts.
All of this in an archaeological site that embraces a modern architecture that goes in line with the current city.
