In 138 BC. the Roman consul Decimus Junius Brutus Callaicus founded a settlement on an island on the Turia River, around 4 km from the mouth of the river into the sea, where the core of the old town is today. He named it Valentia. About a century later, the place became a Roman colony. After the fall of the Roman Empire, nothing happened for a long time. Only after the conquest by the Moors in 711 the city was able to develop well and grow to around 15,000 inhabitants. After five months of siege, King James I of Aragon succeeded in conquering the city on October 9, 1238 (the Dia de la Comunidad Valenciana is still a regional holiday today); Valencia became part of the Kingdom of Aragon.
In the centuries that followed, Valencia continued to grow. Some milestones: when a new city wall was built in the middle of the 14th century, the protected area roughly tripled; from the beginning to the end of the 15th century, the population almost doubled from around 40,000 to around 75,000. At that time, Valencia owned one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and was an important financial and commercial center.
