Especially now, during the pandemic, everybody who has a chance. please visit this magical site! I have bene here 40 years and I figure even than it was busier than today. What a blast to be walking..... more »
These remnants are relics, also reminders that what ancient people achieved with their primitive technology and what we can achieve with ours.
Impressive! Romans knew something about building. The library columns are of different sizes to make the building facade look higher! Take some time to read about the place, it gets much more interesting than simply observing the old rocks.
