The House of Fortune Aug 28, 2008
On either side of a stretch of Roman road lie the remains of two dwellings dating from the first century BC. On the sides you can see the pavements, the walls with the entrance threshold and the Opus signimum decorated flooring, but the most impressive feature is the fresco painted decoration of the diningroom walls of the Casa de la Fortuna, the house which gets its name from the inscription that can be read on the flooring of the courtyard. And the price!!! 2.50 euros!!!!

Tramo de calzada romana a cuyos lados hay restos de dos viviendas del siglo I a.C. En los laterales se aprecian las aceras, los muros con el umbral de acceso y los pavimentos decorados del tipo Opus signimum pero lo más destacable es la decoración con pinturas al fresco de las paredes del comedor de la Casa de la Fortuna, que recibe este nombre de la inscripción que se lee en el pavimento del patio.

Y lo mejor es el precio de la entrada... 2,50 euros!
