Spanish company trashes Roman sites in Beja

Published on 09/10/2017

A Spanish company has ploughed up and destroyed a Roman bridge and a Roman villa in Beja in order to plant an almond orchard.

This is a further example of the destruction of archaeological remains to make way for agriculture as, in recent years, there have been several cases where olive groves, almond trees, vines, eucalyptus forests and pine trees have been seen as far more important than Portugal’s buried history.
