The rural regions of the Roman Empire were full of villages devoted to farming and livestock. The Roman villa of Centcelles, located within the municipal boundaries of Constantí, was probably built in the 4th century. Special attention should be drawn to its dome, decorated with mosaics depicting hunting scenes, biblical imagery and figures whose exact interpretation has been lost. As for the identity of the important personage buried within, it is believed to be the emperor Constantine, a bishop or an important Christian figure of the local aristocracy.
