Milliards of Riocaldo
This recreational area is made up of a series of landmarks belonging to the so-called Via Nova or Via XVIII, a roadway that linked the cities of Braccana Augusta and Asturica Augusta.
These are milestones built in Roman times, located on the border with Portugal, which served to mark the distances along the Via XVIII. Cylindrical stones that served to mark the distances (there was a milestone in every mile), and many of them have inscriptions that worshipped divinities and authorities. The study of these inscriptions allows us to understand the degree of symbiosis between the local and Roman deities. The existence of numerous milestones in this area gives rise to discussion among many archaeologists. While some consider that it is due to the fact that there was a workshop nearby where they were made, others attribute their existence to the fact that as it was a not very inhabited area there was no need to reuse them in later works.
