The Celtiberian town of Segobriga in Hispania Tarraconensis (central Spain) was already mentioned by Pliny the Elder who travelled about 74 BC through the Hispanian peninsula as a roman official.
Segobriga issued its own coins in early imperial Roman times (Augustus – Caligula).
After the breakdown of westroman power the city was occupied by the Visigoths.
In the 8th century it was occupied by Moors from North Africa.
During the time of the moors and the following Spanish reconquista Segobriga lost importance and was finally given up by all inhabitants.
Today the ruins and excavations are visited by tourists.
