Iulia Concordia alias Concordia Sagittaria
Concordia, or better, IVLIA CONCORDIA was founded by Romans in 42 b.C. at the crossroad of two very important roads: the Via Annia and the Via Postumia. The site actually was inhabitated already since the X century b.C..
In recent times, a second name was added: Sagittaria from the roman sagitta - in Latin it means arrow - because in Roman times it had an important arrow factory.
Walking in the streets of Concordia is always interesting: in many places you can see archeological findings that remind you about its ancient history.
