INFORMATION

The Augusteum is an important building which gives an insight of life in this city during the 1st and 2nd centuries AD. Here gathered the priests who worshiped the Emperor. It was therefore an instrument to disseminate the imperial ideology during the times of Augustus.

It is located in Calle Caballero, in the old town. In ancient times, the most important area of Carthago Nova was settled here: the trading, religious, and administrative centres, where the most relevant buildings were built. Right here, in 1991, the remains of two Roman buildings from the 1st and 2nd centuries AD were discovered, along with remains of previous and following periods.

It is an important public building, highly ornamented as shown by its luxurious marble floor.

In a following exhibition area, you will see remains of the Augustan era, such as daily objects, coins and decorative elements.
