Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Roman monoliths


In the San Bartolomé district, there are three Egyptian granite columns almost 9 m high, set on local marble bases and at their original level, 4.5 m deep above street level. They were made in the time of the Emperor Hadrian and possibly formed part of some Roman temple.

Three other columns were found on the site, one was broken when it was moved and two were moved to the Alameda de Hércules, where they are currently located.
