Museo del Foro de Caesaraugusta
This permanent exhibition, excavated in the Plaza de La Seo between 1988-1989, allows the visitor to view the remains of the colony of Caesar Augustus (the Roman town, founded between 19 and 14 B.C. which gives Zaragoza its name) in situ. The remains are those of the city forum and the market, foundations of various shops, the porch of the new forum (1st century A.D.) and the drains. In addition, several archaeological artifacts found during the digging, such as glass, coins and ceramics, are exhibited in display cases. The entrance to the museum (which is beneath the Plaza de La Seo itself) is via an immense portal built in Iranian onyx. Other important artifacts can be seen in the Museo del Puerto Romano and in the Museo de las Termas Publicas de Caesaraugusta.Admission : adults EUR 2; reduced rates for students and groups; free admission for seniors and children under 8.
The staff were great - very helpful and enthusiastic. The ruins are underground and reasonably well displayed though a bit more information on what was excavated in each area would have been nice. Small displays on various aspects of Roman life (in several languages). Also an audio visual display. On the whole I thought it was probably aimed at school parties. The massive drains were probably the most interesting feature.
