    Spain Italica Seville: Excursion to Santiponce from Seville

    The trip from Seville to Santiponce takes 20-30 minutes. Santiponce, a neighboring city in the metropolitan area, is home to the first Roman colony in Iberia, founded over 2,000 years ago.

    At the entrance to the Roman city, our official guide will provide historical context, then we'll visit the site, which was home to emperors such as Trajan and Hadrian.

    Like all ancient cities, Italica holds its secrets and special places. Among its most famous is the amphitheater, built between 117 and 138 under Emperor Hadrian, which had three levels and could hold 25,000 spectators. Beneath its ancient wooden floor was a service pit where munus gladiatorum and venationes were held.

    The amphitheater's caveas were divided into three sections, separated by passageways called praecinctiones. The first, the ima caveas, had six tiers and eight entrances, reserved for leaders. The media cavea, with 12 tiers and 14 entrances, hosted the commoners. The summa cavea, covered by a canopy, was reserved for women and children.

    The Italica amphitheater also had chambers dedicated to the worship of Nemesis and Dea Caelestis. Other notable sites include the Traianeum, the temple dedicated to Trajan, built by Emperor Hadrian.

    The Roman city of Italica was founded by General Publius Cornelius Scipio in 206 BC. Abandoned by the Goths in the 5th century, it became Taliqa under the Visigoths and Moors. Excavations began in 1751 under Francisco de Bruna and continue to this day.

    Explore the Different Domus of Italica in Seville

    At its peak under Emperor Hadrian, Italica's new city flourished with grand houses owned by the region's most important and wealthy families. These residences followed the traditional Roman house structure, with interior courtyards.

    The archaeological remains of several of these houses are preserved, including:

    • Exedra House
