Roman Ruins Outside Seville

Just outside the city of Seville are the remnants of the first permanent Roman Settlement in Spain.

The city was established by the famous warrior , Scipio the African as a place to rest his soldiers after doing battle with the Carthaginians. Later Hadrian (he that built the wall) extended the settlement as a tribute to the his predecessor Trajan who was born at the site previously named "Italica"
