They discover a Roman villa in Granada

In Pomegranate one of the most important discoveries of the city in recent years has been made, when a Roman Village with a house with a garden and an oil mill with four presses and a cemetery from the Visigoth period, when works were carried out in a parking lot in Los Mondragones.

These are the early remains of this period found in the city, and it is believed that the town could have been maintained uninterrupted from the 1st to 6th centuries.

Faced with this discovery, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Granada has stated that “this villa constitutes an excellent historical document of incalculable value”. Likewise, he has commented that “not keeping it would be an irreparable misfortune”.

In their statement they have also reported that «There are very few Roman archaeological remains that can be seen in Granada today. Now we have the opportunity to correct this deficiency by finding some that deserve, without any doubt, to be preserved and shown to the citizens«.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
