Augusta Bilbilis was a city in the province of Hispania Tarraconensis founded by the Romans on a Celtiberian settlement situated on the heights of Cerro de Bambola. With a population of 3,000 or 4,000 lives, was an administrative center. Among the remains conserved, special mention should be made of the Forum, Theatre, Thermal Baths and Temple.

It was the birthplace of famous poet Martial c. 40 AD. Bilbilis was abandoned during the crisis of the Roman empire and it was re-founded in the 8th century by the Muslims with the name of Calatayud, 6 km away from the Roman setting. You can also see important archaeological finds at the Calatayud Museum.
