The Roman castellum is a large quadrilateral of 158 m by 139 m, surrounded by a solid wall. Inside there is a huge amount of stones out of which arise several arches, lintels and small columns decorated with crosses. After excavations and allocations of stones, architectural structures were made visible and some of the arches were rebuilt.
