Baelo Claudia - Spain

Besides the portuguese TN cards, Ninocas also sent me this card from Baelo Claudia, an ancient roman town in Spain.

Baelo Claudia is the name of an ancient Roman town, located 22 kilometres (14 mi) outside of Tarifa, near the village of Bolonia, in southern Spain. Lying on the shores of the Straits of Gibraltar, the town was originally a fishing village and trade link when it was settled some 2,000 years ago. Although prosperous at the time of Emperor Claudius, it went into a decline hastened by earthquakes, and was abandoned by the 6th century. - in: wikipedia
