描述

Located beside the route of the former Via Augusta, this triumphal arch is one of the few examples of this type of Roman construction remaining in Spain.

The Via Augusta was the most important Roman road crossing the ancient Roman territory of Hispania. It led from Rome and crossed the Iberian Peninsula all the way until Cadiz. This triumphal arch, possibly a funerary monument erected by the prosperous owner of a nearby villa, stands beside the stretch which runs through the plain beyond the coast of Castellón. Still surviving are the semicircular arch made of stone ashlars standing on two pilasters, of which the 14 voussoirs which form the arch can still be seen today, although the entablature it supported is missing. It has a span of 5.35 metres (of the almost eight it had originally) and a width of 4 metres. It is built of limestone blocks taken from a nearby quarry. Its typology indicates that it probably dates from the 2nd century A.D.
