  • Aroche - Aroche (Aroche)
The Hispano-Roman town of Turóbriga was founded in the time of Nero (54-68 A.D.) and is the culmination of a process, starting from the 2nd century B.C., of generalised occupation and control of an area of territory known as Celtic Baeturia located in the north-east of Andalusia. Rome constructed the town to protect the mining works in the basin and Latin citizens migrated to the area with the aim of achieving rapid Romanisation. Most of the buildings excavated were constructed between the time of Flavius (69-96 A.D.) and the reign of Hadrian (117-138 A.D.). At the start of the 3rd century, in the Severan period, Turóbriga was definitively abandoned and served as a quarry for the construction of new country villas and the extension of other existing buildings as well as the construction of the castle of Aroche and the shrine of San Mamés.
