More about the Romans from A Portrait of Spain course


Los romanos construyeron ciudades de piedra y cemento con caminos rectos que cruzaron el territorio. Cada ciudad tenía una gran zona pública llamada el foro, así como un anfiteatro donde peleaban los gladiadores, un teatro y un circo para carreras de cuadrigas. También había templos dedicados a numerosos dioses y diosas, arcos triunfales, puentes y acueductos. España hoy está llena de restos arquitectónicos romanos, incluidos los suelos con mosaicos espectaculares.

The Romans built cities made of stone and cement with straight roads crossing the countryside.  Each city had a large open public area called a forum as well as an amphitheatre where gladiators fought, a theatre and a circus for chariot races.  There were also temples to numerous gods and goddesses, triumphal arches, bridges and aqueducts.  Spain today is full of Roman architectural remains including floors with spectacular mosaics.
