Info. The Roman amphitheatre of Itálica near Santiponce, Spain
Just north of the Spanish city of Seville, you’ll find the ancient ruins of Itálica, the first Roman settlement in what is now Spain and the first Roman city outside of Italy. The city was founded in 206 BCE by the Roman general Scipio as a settlement for veterans from the Second Punic War. Itálica was also the birthplace of at least two Roman emperors.
