Hercules Villa

Hercules Villa

The Hercules Villa is located to the south of the civilian town of Aquincum, in Óbuda. Dating from Roman times, this dwelling was one of a number uncovered during the archaeological excavations conducted in the 1950’s.

It obtained its name from the floor mosaics depicting the myths of Hercules. The remnants of the villa can be found among the other ruins in the archaeological site, however the mosaics have been transferred into two protective buildings.

The site belongs to the Aquincum Museum.
