Going down from the entrance hall you reach a first platform, where a panel located on the wall, on your left, explains the history of the domus and its main elements as can be seen in a three- dimensional reconstruction. From that same platform you can watch a five-minute video (every half hour) that explains the historical context of the city and this building. Next, please continue the visit by going down the staircase on the right, which will lead you to the lower level of the excavation. Here you can observe some of the domus rooms: the oecus (great hall), the cubiculum (room), the culina (kitchen) and the peristylium (porticoed patio), as well as the lower part of the wall. Then you may return to the upper floor using the staircase on your right, until you reach the Mithraeum or temple. From this area, you can see the remains of the domus water system, with its canals network, as well as traces of the staircase that led to the upper floor of the house in the wall.
From this same spot, you can now have a look at the Mithraeum and the votive inscription preserved in situ. To the left of the temple and on the back wall is a reconstruction of the ceiling of the great hall (oecus) and its humidity control system, which was constructed according to the principles described in the work of the Roman architect known as Vitruvius.
After the tour of the site please ascend to the lobby to continue the visit on the first floor. Here you can see the exhibition that shows the history of the site from medieval times until now.
Ya en el primer piso podemos ver el Mitreo y la inscripción votiva conservada in situ. A la izquierda del templo y en la pared del fondo se encuentra una reconstrucción del techo del salón principal (oecus) y de su sistema de control de humedades, realizado según los principios descritos en la obra del arquitecto Vitruvio.
Terminado el recorrido del yacimiento ascendemos de nuevo al vestíbulo para continuar la visita en el primer piso. Aquí podremos ver la exposición que muestra la historia del solar desde época medieval hasta la actual.
