Museo Del Puerto Fluvial De Caesaraugusta

In Roman times, the River Ebro was navigable from Dertosa (Tortosa), where there was a combined sea-river port, up to Vareia (today Logroño), and all along its banks there was busy trade which gave rise to the appearance of river ports in several cities. Of these ports, Caesaravgvsta was the main redistribution centre of the valley for merchandise from inland (wheat, timber, iron, hides, flax,¿) as well as from the coast ( wine, salted meat and fish, pottery, marble, jewellery, etc.)Situated on the north-east corner of the forum, the port installations ran along the right bank of the river, exploiting the calmness of the water in this area.
