Guided visits to the exhibition 'Images of Antiquity'

The Museum of Segovia promotes this weekend several guided visits to the temporary exhibition 'Images of Antiquity. Return to Roman Architecture in Segovia ', an exhibition that brings together images of Roman buildings, cities and urban complexes in the capital and province, recreated with digital techniques. The exhibition also includes archaeological and architectural pieces from the time.

The guided tours will take place on Saturday October 17, with three groups that are divided into different times, at 11.00, at 12.00 and at 13.00.

Those interested may only attend with a prior reservation, by calling the telephone number 921 46 06 15 or by registering in person at the Museum itself.

'Images of Antiquity' recreates a part of the ancient history of Segovia through graphic documents made with a computer based on archaeological research in recent years. In addition to these images, the posters add information about the methodology used in the recreations, so that viewers can learn about the creative process of these digital images.
