Italica, the ruins of a Roman City in Spain

Founded in the 2nd century BC by Scipio, Italica was the first Roman settlement in Spain. It’s amphitheater, which seated 25,000, has served as a quarry for later structures, with little of its original marble surface still in place. Many of the pillars in the mosque in Cordoba came from Italica.

Thanks. I loved Spain, It was my first trip there. And Seville is a fascinating place. I was with a tour so we did the regulars, the palace and the cathedral. Loved them. The Columbus tomb is spectacular. I also went to Salvator, where several pasos were on display. Definitely want to return. I am thinking about a short course in Spanish. Any schools you would recommend that aren’t just of the college age crowd?
