About the Tour

IMPORTANT: THE USE OF A MASK IS MANDATORY DURING THE WHOLE VISIT.
Did you know that the only Roman city in the entire Community of Madrid is in Alcalá de Henares? Visit the millenary Complutum with the help of an archaeologist and official guide.

The Imperial Complutum is one of the star sites of the Community of Madrid, with almost 50 hectares of extension it is located a few minutes walk from the historic center of the current Alcalá de Henares. The archaeological activity that has been taking place in the place, beginning in the s. XVI, is among the oldest in all of Spain.

Our tour will take you, through the orthogonal layout of its centuries-old streets, to know its origins and the first human settlements in the Vega del Río Henares, until its last moments of life before the definitive abandonment of the city, at the dawn of the s . VIII AD

We will visit the remains of all the imposing public buildings that were built around the Imperial Forum, the true heart of every Roman city, and we will understand how and why the Roman civilization acquired all its power through a complex network of cities communicated with each other by a network of roads that even today does not cease to amaze us.

The Casa de los Grifos and the Casa de Hippolytus with their spectacular wall paintings and mosaics, whose degree of conservation is unique in Spain, will put the icing on the cake on this guided tour of the Roman Complutum. And all this, in a tour in which you can decide the price at the end.
