Hispalis



Antiquarium Metropol Parasol.

The remains found in this structure converted into a museum corresponding to the 1st to 6th centuries, which belongs to the Roman period, in which the mosaics of the Roman House, the House of the Nymph and the House of Bacchus stand out, as well as a mural of three meters in the Patio del Océano. In the area there is also the House of the Column, which contains the mosaic of the jellyfish, the House of Bases, the House of Sigma, the House of the Wheel and the Hospitium of the Dolphins. You can also see the remains of a salting factory.

Another part of the Antiquarium corresponds to the Andalusian period of the city (XII-XIII centuries), in which an Almohad Islamic house stands out. In addition, it preserves information from the Middle Ages, Modern Age and Contemporary Age.

The space has an area of ​​almost 5000 square meters and is presented as a center of interpretation of the history of Seville.

Forum

The location of the Forum was possibly the Plaza de la Alfalfa where the Decumano Máximo departed to go through Aguilas Street, until the Plaza de San Agustin. At the maximum Forum came the water of the Aqueduct of Carmona because in the area in this area is the remains of a Roman cistern where water was received.

Basilica.

Possibly, this building for commercial use, was in the area of ​​the church of Salvador, due to its proximity to the Forum of the Plaza de la Alfalfa. Of this Roman time only the foundations would remain since this building (the patio of the church we found capitals of compound type) would later become a Christian temple.

Temple Street Marmoles.

Not far from the other areas and following the usual Roman design, it would be located on Mármoles street, the main temple. This temple would be of type Hexástilo and Próstilo and of its columns there are three in situ, two in the Alameda de Hércules and one sixth that was broken in the transfer.

Aqueduct of the Caños de Carmona.

The remains of this Aqueduct that have reached us, are the Almohade period reforms. These badly named Caños de Carmona actually brought water from the springs of nearby Alcalá de Guadaira to the cisterns of the Foro.El aqueduct dates from the Roman imperial era, according to the remains found in the explorations carried out in the tunnels or “mines” of Alcalá de Guadaíra.

Patio Banderas

Around 50 a.C., already in the time of Julius Caesar, a monumental building for port use is built in this space due to the proximity to the river

It was located a terrace that looked at the port, the building was used as warehouses and tabularium (file). This area was like a peninsula due to the shape of the Guadalquivir and the Tagarete, where a series of buildings related to the intense maritime traffic of Híspalis were built. From this port oil and wine began to the rest of the Roman Empire and from distant lands came materials to meet the demands of the increasingly wealthy patrician class of Betica.

The excavated building has two levels, its basement being opened by means of a porticoed gallery to a wide square with columns from which only one of its sides could be rescued. We are at the southern end of the Patio de Banderas and the Roman square would extend below the current Alcázar. It is possible that there had been a temple dedicated to Isis.

At the end of the third century AD, there was a cataclysm that could have been a tsunami or a tsunami. The buildings were sunk by the force of the water and the area was abandoned, taking refuge in the highest city of the city.
