Roman Cordoba’s Route

Ruta de la Córdoba Romana

The Roman Cordoba´s Route takes the visitor back to the first century AD, one of the most fascinating eras in the history of Cordoba, when Roman rule in the city was in its full splendour, and when the Patrician city of Corduba, the capital of Hispania Ulterior and later the capital of Betica, underwent a period of large scale urban expansion and monument building under the auspices of the Emperor Augustus.

There is no better way to bring that period of Cordoba´s history closer to the general public than through that universal citizen of Cordoba, Lucius Anneus Seneca, philosopher and politician, who held a number of important positions, including that of tutor to the young Emperor Nero. Seneca, together with Plato, Aristotle and Socrates, is one of the fathers of classical thought, and his work has inspired philosophers and thinkers throughout the ages.
