Roman Ruins
Cartagena’s Roman roots run deep. Excavation of the 7,000-seat Roman amphitheater (Plaza del Ayuntamiento, 9) began only in 1988—before that, a residential neighborhood and cathedral had been built above and around the ancient elements visible today. Casa de la Fortuna (Calle Gisbert, 10), a site that was once a wealthy merchant family’s home, offers a more intimate glance at life in Roman times. In a dimly lit underground space, floor mosaics and wall paintings are well preserved and artifacts like cosmetics, cooking utensils and oil lamps are displayed in this dwelling that is over 2,000 years old.
