As a testimony to the past there is an arch of 2000 years old. A “mutatio” was a stop for resting which offered some services to travelers such as food and water to passengers and horses, setting the wheels of the car, medicines, veterinary care, etcètera. It also was a place to change horses if necessary. Each mutatio was located every 12-18 roman miles (15-25kilometers).
