Recinte Monumental del Pretori y del Circ Romà Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
This museum is housed in the praetorium, which is also known as the "Castillo de Pilatos". The building, which occupied one end of the Roman forum, has been used for a variety of purposes in its long history: an administrative centre in the 1C BC, a royal residence in the Middle Ages, a barracks after the War of Succession, and a prison in the 19C. It became a museum in 1968, housing among other works the Hippolyte sarcophagus, a beautiful work sculpted in a Greek workshop in the 3C AD.
