The Roman Basin: The City of Segóbriga
The Roman City of Segóbriga is one of the most important vestiges of the Roman Empire in the Iberian Peninsula. Its splendor is due to the trade in one of the materials that most fascinated the empire: Lapis Specularis or Crystal of Hispania, whose history can still be seen in the Roman Mines of Lapis Specularis.
