The Roman City of Segóbriga was the capital of the mining district of Lapis Specularis (a variety of Plaster, which forms laminar glass). This mineral was used as a window pane and became a luxury item, until the laminated glass was developed and took its place. In that period, Segóbriga became one of the most prosperous and monumental cities of Roman Hispania (only seven cities in Hispania had Theater, Amphitheater and Circus). With the appearance of laminar glass and the end of the Lapis Specularis demand, Segóbriga's economy collapsed.<br><br>Mines of Lapis Spacularis. We will visit examples of those mines that made Segóbriga and its mining district, one of the most prosperous areas of the Roman Empire. We will see how this crystal was extracted and how the miners lived and worked.<br><br>Villa of Noheda. Finally, we will visit the archaeological park of the Villa de Noheda, where we can admire one of the largest preserved mosaics in the Roman world.<br>
