About Carranque Archaeological Park

Carranque Archaeological Park (Parque Arqueologico de Carranque) contains a series of Ancient Roman ruins built in the fourth century AD. The site is believed to have a connection with Emperor Theodosius I the Great.

Carranque Archaeological Park is mainly comprised of a well preserved villa – known as the Materno Villa – as well as a nymphaeum (temple) and a basilica. There is also a small ancient burial ground.

A good place to either start or end your trip is at the visitor centre, which contains some of the objects found at the Carranque Archaeological Park as well as models of how it would once have looked.
