edil salgado's insight:

The Romans had loved Córdoba. In 152 BC they had founded the elegant city of Corduba, and made it the capital of their Hispania Baetica. Seneca, the philosopher who went on to tutor the insane Emperor Nero, was born here, as was the poet Lucan; for the Romans, Córdoba was not some barbaric outpost, like Londinium or Tingis (modern-day Tangiers), but a centre of their civilisation, where true Romans lived and raised their families.

Where is the seventh Celtic nation?

Where is the seventh Celtic nation? | Ancient Spain | Scoop.it
Galicia, an autonomous region on Spain’s rugged northwestern coast, is home to ancient relics, pagan myths and a vibrant, living history unlike anywhere else in the world.

Via Charles S GL
edil salgado's insight:

The misty forests and craggy bluffs of Ireland and Wales have long been symbolically linked to the Celtic legacy of the region. But evidence suggests that the Celts traveled beyond the northern islands, all the way down to the sunny shores of northwest Spain.

The autonomous region of Galicia, Spain, is the seventh Celtic Nation and the least known of the group. The other six include Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, Isle of Mann and Brittany, France, reported the BBC. Beyond the sun and surf of the Spanish coast lie the same mysterious menhirs that dot the Irish countryside, and the region has its own collection of Celtic traditions that continue today — from ancient “pallozas” (stone huts believed to be Celtic) to summer solstice ritual bonfires.

edil salgado's insight:

Although this is an article about an art exhibit, the main point of the paints is an ancient city in Spain called Granada which is place of many ancient sites for example, “San Miguel Caves.”

The region surrounding Granada has been populated by Iberians from at least the 8th century B.C. The region has furthermore experienced Phoenician, Greek, Punic, Roman, and Visigothic influences.

This site from "Kingsborough Community College" (NY) has a whole page about the history and vilization of Spain. The site showed that SSpanish culture back to the "Stone Age" and that many of the ancient world's classic civilizations had contacts with the people of ancient Spain.

 

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/598552/ToledoOf ancient origin, Toledo is mentioned by the Roman historian Livy as urbs parva, sed loco munita (“a small city, but fortified by location”). Conquered by the Roman general Marcus Fulvius Nobilior in 193 bce, it became an important Roman colony and the capital of Carpentia. The city was the residence of the Visigothic court in the 6th century and site of the famous councils, the third of which (589) was particularly important because of King Recared’s conversion to Christianity.
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/536808/SevillaSevilla was originally an Iberian town. Under the Romans it flourished from the 2nd century bce onward as Hispalis, and it was an administrative centre of the province of Baetica. The Silingi VAndals made it the seat of their kingdom early in the 5th century ce, but in 461 it passed under Visigothic rule. In 711 the town fell to the Muslims, and under their rule Ixvillia, as it was then called, flourished. It became a leading cultural and commercial centre under the ʿAbbādid dynasty and the subsequent Almoravid and Almohad confederations. As the Almohad capital in the 12th century, Sevilla enjoyed great prosperity and ambitious building programs. But after the Muslim possession of Sevilla was ended in 1248 by Spanish Christians under Ferdanand III, the substantial Moorish and Jewish minorities were driven into exile, and the local economy temporarily fell into ruin.

Like many archaeological sites, Conímbriga was built in layers. The archaeological evidence tells us that Conímbriga was inhabited, at least, between the 9th century BC and 7th / 8th century AD.

Following the deep political and administrative crisis of the Empire, Conímbriga suffered the consequences of the barbaric invasions.

edil salgado's insight:

Barcelona has a long and rich history going as far back as the Carthaginians in the 2nd century B.C. Legend has it that the father of Hannibal (of Alps and Elephants fame) originally founded the city. Smarting from their defeat by the Romans in the first Punic War, the crafty Carthaginians moved into Spain hoping its wealth would put them back on equal footing with the Romans.

Barcelona is full of surprises…….

Ancient Pyramid Discovered Underwater In Portugal http://t.co/4JFKm5LmPK
edil salgado's insight:

Very fascinated. 

“As the area is a volcanic zone, a natural rise in the group cannot yet be ruled out, however, some archaeologists fear that the ‘natural formation’ conclusion may be drawn too quickly if the data contradicts what is already believed to be true about the history of the region. The Azorean archipelago was discovered uninhabited by the Portuguese around 1427. However, recent archaeological evidence on Pico island suggests that humans occupied the Azores thousands of years before the Portuguese arrived. Evidence has been found on all nine of the Azorean archipelago including pyramidal rock structures, some of them 13 meters tall, which appear to align with the summer solstices, an epigraph from Roman times, Carthaginian sanctuaries, cave art, and megalithic structures.” - See more at: http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-history-archaeology/reports-underwater-pyramid-coast-terceira-island-00864#sthash.SSeL17NW.dpuf

Visit two magnificent castilian cities in one day, beautiful fortified Avila and ancient roman Segovia. (Visit two magnificent castilian cities in one day, beautiful fortified #Avila and ancient roman #Segovia.
edil salgado's insight:

The city of Ávila is situated on the Adaja River at 3,715 feet (1,132 metres) above sea level and is surrounded by the lofty Sierra de Gredos (south) and the Sierra de Guadarrama (east). The city lies 72 miles (115 km) northwest of Madrid. A pre-Roman settlement on the site became part of Roman Lusitania and was known as Abula, or Avela, before falling (c. 714) to the Moors. It was recaptured for the Christians by Alfonso VI in 1085.

Segovia is very famous for his aqueduct. The Aqueduct of Segovia (or more precisely, the aqueduct bridge) is a Roman aqueduct and one of the most significant and best-preserved ancient monuments left on the Iberian Peninsula. It is located in Spain, and is the foremost symbol of Segovia, as evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms.

Alcázar de Toledo / Alcazar of Toledo - The best places in Spain | Ancient Spain | Scoop.it

The Alcazar of Toledo (Alcázar de Toledo) is an ancient stone-made fortification located uptown the Old City of Toledo, in Castile La Mancha region.

edil salgado's insight:

Having been populated since the Bronze Age, Toledo (Toletum in Latin) grew in importance during Roman times, being a main commercial and administrative centre in the Roman Province of Carthaginensis. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Toledo served as the capital city of Visigothic Spain, beginning with Leovigild, till the Moors conquered the Iberian peninsula in the early years of 8th century (711-719).
