The Fortuna House (Cartagena)

This is a Roman domus that belongs to the first century BC and that has access from the Plaza de Risueño.

Its name "Fortuna" is due to a Latin inscription found in its rear entrance, in which one can read the words "Fortuna Propitia" in English (“Good Luck”). The idea of this phrase was to give fortune to all those who entered this house.

The Fortuna House is divided into settings typical of the Roman era, such as the reception room or tablinum, the bedroom or cubiculum, or the meeting and dining room or triclinium.

Currently, this house has been adapted for its exhibition. Its visitors can contemplate ornaments of the time found in the excavation as well as crockery and coins, among other objects.
