This historical site was accidentally discovered in 1881 and for many years has been visited by thousands wishing to view the Roman artefacts and antiquities including the mosaics. 

The building hosting the site has been re-adapted to provide accessibility for persons with mobility impairment. Both indoor and outdoor areas enjoy a much higher level than in its erstwhile condition and also there are ramps, wide door openings and better yet doors that open with a push-button, tables that can fit a wheelchair under them with no crossbar for a base*, bathroom doors that can easily be pushed/pulled open by someone in a wheelchair, bathroom stalls wide enough for a wheelchair user, sinks that a wheelchair user can get under while also reaching the soap and paper towel holders in reach.
