The Pit Camp
On the hill of the current town of Astorga has been located the so-called 'trench of the camp', a vestige of the defensive system of a Roman military camp founded in the Cantabrian Wars (29-19 BC) and which very probably is the origin the current urban settlement. Cantabrian Wars and the importance of gold ore led to a legionary camp aimed at pacification and control of the autochthonous Astures inhabitants from the second decade BC.
