From Roman times, specifically from the 2nd to 7th centuries AD, remains of common ceramics and sigilatas (Roman luxury ceramics) from Republicans to late Roman, made by hand have been found in Molina de Segura.

There are also Roman sites scattered throughout the municipality in what we know as Molina field marking the pathways that profusely traveled the area.

They are small villas (villae) and farms dedicated to the cultivation of the land.

These deposits abound especially in the natural corridor that from Santa Pola-Elche circulates through the valley where today they are located Abanilla, Fortuna, El Fenazar (in Molina) and Archena.

In addition, we also find Roman sites in the axis of communication that runs through the municipality from north to south, from the lands of the Northeast (Jumilla, Yecla) and the valley of Segura.

It is the place where the so-called Cordel de los Valencianos runs, which before becoming the pass of the Mesta, served with security as an axis of communication between the Segura valley and the north of what is now the Region of Murcia.

The urban nucleus of Molina de Segura was one of the points where the Roman road passed, later medieval, that crossed the Valley of the Segura and that connected Cartagena with Complutúm (present Alcalá de Henares).

Therefore, for what is today the municipal term of Molina, passed in Roman time 3 routes.

A main one by the valley of the Segura (Cartagena-Complutum) and two secondary (actus), Santa Pola-Elche up to Archena, where it connected with the first, and that from the Valley of the Segura crosses the current term by the east and connects with Northeastern Murcia (Jumilla and Yecla), some of which we know of their existence, not by Roman authors, but by the Arab geographers of the 11th and 12th century.

Al-Udrí and Al-Idrisi, which describe ancient Roman communication roads also used in Muslim times.

To this first Roman poblamiento it is necessary to attribute the name of Molina that is not Arab but of Latin origin with the meaning of climbed amesetado.

With the aim of boosting all the spaces of the municipality and approaching the Molina of its beginnings, this year from the municipal Consistory has opted for this location and theme that, from the ROMAN MARKET, connect the visitor with the busy Paseo Rosales ideal place to tapas and buy, the commercial Calle Mayor or the nearby MUDEM, modern MUSEUM OF ENCLAVE DE LA MURALLA, where you can learn about our medieval past and that until June 6 houses a collection of Roman chandeliers from the MARQ (Archaeological Museum of Alicante) that make up the exhibition Luz de Roma.

The MUDEM is open every Saturday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Sundays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and it is possible to arrange guided tours at different times or participate in the Theatrical visit on Saturday 12 at 6:00 pm, upon reservation at mudem @ esatur .com or by calling 968 388 562.

Also in this way you can visit the Plaza de San Vicente Ferrer, where you start the ascent to the Mirador del Castillo, Oven of the Council, Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, Los Shutters Center, ... a walk that is recommended for all the publics
