About
Roman City of Segobriga. This Archaeological site is one of the most important and best preserved Roman remains in Spain. The Roman City of Segobriga was the commercial and economic center of the Lapis Specularis mining. Lapis Specularis is a variety of gypsum that form crystal sheets and were used as the first window panes in history. The Lapis Specularis became much in demand by the wealthiest families of the empire, and the economic growth allowed the monumentalization of the city. There were only seven Roman cities in Hispania with Theater, Amphitheater and Circus, and Segobriga was one of them. The economy of the city collapsed when the technique of manufacturing glass in sheets was developed and demand of the Lapis Specularis ceased. Lapis Specularis Mines. We will visit some of those mines that made Segobriga and its region great. Here we will discover how this crystal was mined from its natural site, how they worked in the mines, and how the miners who worked there lived. Villa of Noheda. Finally we will visit the Mosaics of Noheda, one of the largest of the Roman Empire in the world
