2. HISTORY OF THE CITY

Later, the city was conquered by the Romans, who called Frolonkopolis. The Romans began to live around the current Monte Viejo, which corresponds to the old town when the Roman Forum, remains dating from the first century.
MEDIEVAL AGE: In the Middle Ages, the city changed the name and was called Foskópolis, the city was one of the most important ports in the world, because we can find a variety of manuscripts from transactions with other traders in the Middle Ages. The city began to leave the Latin to make way for Spanish, the official language of the city.
Christian culture is present in this city, the first cathedral to be built was the St. William, located on a slope of Monte Viejo, and which dates from 1249. Just one of the peaks of Monte Viejo is the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, which was built from 1299 until his inauguration in 1310. in the Rock Island, there was lighthouse, which was destroyed in an earthquake in 1387.
MODERN AGE: In modern times the city population was earning a substantial way. At this time they began to build almost all the cathedrals and churches in the city, namely by 1500.
In 1773, the British army attempted to colonize Foskópolis, but lost the defeat, in the honor of the country, it was decided to lift the Arc de Triomphe, in the district of Santa Maria.
CONTEMPORANY AGE: The 18th century was the century of gold, as they had so many artists in the city, a fact that led to create the Boulevard of culture, and where they are most museums in the city, and the neighborhood of La Latina, where is the best theaters in the city.
The Industrial Revolution came tackles the city, leading to the creation of industrial areas in the south and north of the city. The first railway line linking Foskópolis - La Berdaña, a mountain village rich in coal. Currently all trains leave from the Estación del Oeste (Western Railway) Station.
Foskópolis didn't participated in any World War.
