LateRooms.com - Enjoy Italica, Hill Gods while in Seville

March 18, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com reports people with an interest in Roman history may want to check out a new exhibition entitled Italica, Hill Gods at a venue near Seville.

The most impressive piece on display is the head of a statue with a form of crown on it, which archaeologists believe to be a goddess and that sits alongside 21 other artefacts to offer visitors a fascinating insight into Roman art.

Travellers staying at accommodation in Seville will not have to go far to find it, since the exhibit is housed in the Municipal Museum in Santiponce, which can be reached by bus or car.

Put together through a collaboration between various local organisations such as the Conjunto Arqueologico de Italica and the Diputacion Provincial de Sevilla, the show is particularly interesting since all of the items have been found in a certain part of Santiponce that has been dubbed the Hill of the Gods.

The venue explained that this shows the rich heritage the area must have, with current estimates indicating that the statues date back to the first or second century AD.

People can visit the display until May 25th, between 10:00 and 14:00 (local time) from Tuesday to Thursday, 10:00 to 14:00 and 16:00 to 19:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, while on Sundays the museum is open from 10:00 to 15:00.

Admission is free for EU citizens.

While in the area, travellers can also check out the Roman amphitheatre there.
