CUEVAS DE SORIA Soria, Spain.

A Roman villa 23 km SW of Numancia. It is one of the best examples in Spain of the classical type of Hellenistic dwelling, with rooms around a central peristyle (22 x 41 m). Of the 30 apartments discovered, 22 have floors covered with polychrome mosaics in opus tessellatum, occupying a total area of 1400 sq. m. The villa probably dates from the end of the 2d c. and was inhabited until the end of the Empire.
