In Brigantia

A second corner of Hispania looks to the Northwest where the city of Brigantia lies in Galicia.  A high tower, an observation point towards Britannia, rises in the city.

The Farum Brigantium, built when Trajan was Emperor (AD 98 to AD 117), is 34 meters tall to the base of the light, which still stands, plus perhaps 3 more meters for the now disappeared light housing: 37 meters in total height.  Compare to the first skyscraper, Chicago's Home Insurance Building of 1885: 42 meters.  Brigantia sat halfway across Via XX - Bracara Augusta-Asturica Augusta, i.e., Roman Highway 20, from Braga in Portugal to Astorga in Spain.  Brigantia is now known as La Coruña, and Peregrinus docked at the Real Club Náutico de La Coruña for a couple of spectacular days.  Leica Typ 114, 28 September 2015.
