Tarsatica – Excavations
The passage at the foot of Luka lead to an internal market, Principia at Tarsatica. Today there is the underfloor façade of the Church of Saint Sebastian and Fabian. The Tarsatica military command layout had a forty feet long square shape, which rose by adapting to the slope of the land. The space of the inner courtyard is presented and treated as the Archaeological Park or Principia Tarsatica. Over its remains, following the closed structure and using the available building materials, houses of medieval, baroque and renaissance Rijeka were built, making it a characteristic monument in which the late antique prints intertwine with the subsequent architectural layers.
