This post is a continuation of a series of posts about my latest Andalusian trip in southern Spain. If you love history and visiting any of the numerous Roman ruins in Spain, then this post is for you. ;) When the hubz and I stopped by Seville for a day, we let go of the usual touristy monuments ( except for the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville) and instead explored the city´s outskirts a little. This is Itálica, an ancient Roman city founded in 206 BC.
What was left of the city were columns, leftover parts of walls and mosaic tiled floors, all part of the structures which once formed this ancient city. Surprisingly, the amphitheater was the most well-preserved structure of this almost 2,000 year old city but first here´s what I wore:
I´m sure there have been a lot of festivities that were celebrated in here during those times. Gladiators? Oh yeah, they could´ve fought in here. ;)
These rectanguar pillars were part of the underground area of the amphitheater:
And this was how the corridors look like below, a good place to play hide and seek in the modern times but probably a dangerous place to stay in those times. eeeewww!
A posterity photo at the top:
More underground photo from below. I recommend this place to those who are tired of modern buildings but be sure to bring a hat( which I forgot), water to hydrate your body and put on lots of sunblock because this is an open- air area.
You might have already seen this outfit if you´ve been following my WIWW posts every Wednesday. I wore this ensemble when I also visited Seville´s Museum of Fine Arts on the same day. Chambray top over faux leather skirt and a chartreuse colored bag makes for a fine outfit while visiting the ruins, isn´t it? ;)
