This itinerary immerses the visitor in Roman times, actively connecting with the past from the visit to the remains, feeling the sensations offered by contact with "the ruins". It is a circular route, it leaves and is collected in the Roman Museum of Astorga, where the visit is managed, for which prior reservation must be made since capacity is limited.
A chronological order is followed, since in the first point of the route the remains of the oldest settlement, the camp of the Tenth Gemina Legion are presented.
Then we immerse ourselves in the environment of a thermal building, in which we will have the opportunity to go through all the rooms of these establishments dedicated to leisure and business.
Next, we visited the Curia, the place where the Decuriones met to decide on the fate of the city.
The sensations reach their peak when the visitor descends into the sewer, one of the most attractive points on the route.
We walked in front of the portico that closed the great forum - public square - on its southern flank, to end by visiting a domus, probably owned by an important personage of the Roman administration, judging by the richness of the mosaic that paves the reception room of this Great house.
Each of the places that are part of the itinerary is equipped with adequate lighting. The visitor's senses are also stimulated through the journey through a series of soundscapes that take him to the historical moment when each of the buildings was in use.
