During the next few days on the 1st and 2nd of October the Castellon town of Traiguera will go back to Roman times. The streets of the old town of the municipality will be again as Thiar Julia, the Roman villa quoted by Ptolemy set in the Via Augusta that passed through Traiguera. A journey of 2,000 years to enjoy a weekend of culture, history and tradition.
During this weekend you can live the daily life of a Roman villa, with parades of soldiers, floral dances, cuisine from Roman times, a craft market with local products, and many mythological creatures swarming the most unexpected places of the town: the satyrs, fauns, nymphs and jellyfish will be lurking.
The eleventh edition of the Roman Fair Thiar Julia is the perfect opportunity to discover the fascinating Roman world thanks to the various activities held in the streets of Traiguera, as well as the large number of exhibitions, guided tours and audiovisual to be performed. The younger will be especially welcome to the fair, which has prepared many activities, including a children's gastronomic workshop such as making bread and also a square full of giant wooden games.
Traiguera is located in the Baix Maestrat, surrounded by nature and many sources. The city boasts its pottery past, dating back to the Iberian and Roman times, and that has remained until today. Do not miss to visit the Royal Monastery of Our Lady of Health, the most important monument, the Royal Route Santuari or Pascualino Route, are essential.
