Lucentum

The remains of the city's Roman past

The Tossal de Manises, also known as the ancient Roman area of Lucentum, is an archaeological monument open to the public, where research is being carried out to this day. This site has been worked on since the 18th century, obtaining artifacts that show the evolution of human occupation from the arrival of Romans and Carthagineans to the Alicante area, up to Muslim times. At Lucentum, you can watch the researchers working on site and also at the laboratory where they process the samples. The experts at the Museo Arqueológico de Alicante have proposed a study to analyse and, later, display the remains of a fierce battle that took place in this area between Romans and Carthagineans during the Second Punic Wars.
