Itálica: Sevilla’s Roman City

I spent this afternoon at the Roman ruins of Itálica, where the infrastructure of an entire 2nd-century BC city has been preserved. The archaeological site is located in the town of Santiponce, only about 15 minutes from Castilleja. Here are some photos from the visit (I continue shooting predominantly in black and white here).
