Is The Lupanar the name of the brothel? Do you know what it would mean in English?

I've read about these "murals," but have never seen one. Thanks for showing this; it is magnifique!

It also reminds me how some things never change and probably never will!

Ha! I remember this place. I hope it isn't one of the buildings there that recently collapsed.

What does it say about human nature that people painted these frescoes 2,000 years ago and that people today are so fascinated by them? I think I will need to contemplate that question, while I go take a cold shower.
