" The Mediterranean began to be known as the Mare Nostrum. Exotic peoples and cultures arrived from the east."

Improvements in navigation and talent for trade brought the peoples of the eastern Mediterranean towards our country throughout the first millennium B.C. Before the Roman Empire appeared, Phoenicians, Punics and Greeks landed on the coast and established trading colonies, also attracted by the mining riches in Spain, from Roses in Girona to the area around Huelva. In addition, somewhere in Andalusia, the mixing of the new arrivals and the local populations gave rise to a unique and mysterious civilisation: Tartessos.
