Overview

This permanent exhibition, excavated in the Plaza de La Seo between 1988-1989, allows the visitor to view the remains of the colony of Caesar Augustus (the Roman town, founded between 19 and 14 B.C. which gives Zaragoza its name) in situ. The remains are those of the city forum and the market, foundations of various shops, the porch of the new forum (1st century A.D.) and the drains. In addition, several archaeological artifacts found during the digging, such as glass, coins and ceramics, are exhibited in display cases. The entrance to the museum (which is beneath the Plaza de La Seo itself) is via an immense portal built in Iranian onyx. Other important artifacts can be seen in the Museo del Puerto Romano and in the Museo de las Termas Publicas de Caesaraugusta.
