The Roman Forum Museum stands as the entrance to one of the largest urban archaeological parks in Spain. Throughout its various halls, where a careful selection of pieces is exhibited, you will be able to learn about the long history of Cerro del Molinete from today back to the old Carthago Nova.
The visit concludes with a tour of important remains of the glorious Roman era that invite you to stroll through them: the Curia or local senate with its richly decorated marble pavement; the Colonial Forum, the city’s neuralgic centre, the distribution of which symbolised at various levels the hierarchy between the divine and the human; the Sanctuary of Isis where the mystery cults of the Egyptian gods were celebrated; the old roads with cart tracks; the port’s thermal baths and in particular its magnificent entrance portico with its original flooring; and to finish the Atrium Building, with its high walls and pictorial decorations that transport you to the great banquets of the Roman Empire.
El Barrio del Foro Romano constituye una manzana completa de la Cartagena romana. Más de 2.000 m2 distribuidos en dos edificios, las termas y un edificio para banquetes religiosos. Muros de más de 4 metros de altura, pinturas decorando las paredes, etc. En definitiva, un entorno privilegiado para la celebración de cócteles exclusivos.
