The Roman Villa of Veranes

Its construction follows the canons of the time. The small emperor of this hacienda lived from agriculture and livestock, and his village dominated a beautiful sunny hill, which allowed him even the cultivation of vineyards, very rare in these latitudes. Currently, it is one of the most paradigmatic places to investigate the transition from the Roman to the medieval world.
