This Roman site has both, urban and rural features. With an area larger than a Roman Villae, it could be considered to be a vicus or a small town. Its size is unknown but may be related to other defensive settlements of the same era, which were already known in Alcalá la Real.
This vicus dates from the 1st to 5th century AD and experienced at least two important moments of destruction. The first was in the second half of 3rd century AD caused by a large fire. The other was during the 4th century.
The name Domus Herculana is used to describe a building, room or house, where different elements related to the figure of the Roman Hercules have been found.
The public is able to better understand the importance of these ruins thanks to the installations and explanatory elements incorporated.
