Guide to the Roman Augusteum in Cartagena Spain

 

Roman Augusteum - One of the finest archaeological sites in the city of Cartagena is the Augusteum (after the Emperor Augustus).

Consisting of the remains of two public buildings from the original Roman city of Carthago Nova (New City), the Augusteum dates from the 1st Century AD, it was used for religious meetings and is thought to have been the main gathering place for the priests belonging to the cult of the Roman Emperor Augustus.

Exhibits on show include artefacts found during the excavation process and among these are coins, bowls, pottery, jars and roof tile fragments.

Unfortunately the Augusteum is only open from 4pm to 7pm (Tuesday to Sunday).

Entry to the Augusteum costs 2.50 euros (2006).
