Title AJDOVŠ?INA – CASTRA – ROMAN FORTRESS

History of the stamp(s) The Roman fortress or Castra (mutatio Castra) was built in the third century AD along the road connecting Aquileia and Ljubljana (Emona). It stood at the confluence of two streams, the Hubelj and the Lokavš?ek, on the site of an earlier Roman settlement, and was an important administrative and commercial centre of the Vipava Valley. The fortress was part of the defensive system known as Claustra Alpium Iuliarum (Barrier of the Julian Alps), within which it had supply and command functions and housed a permanent garrison.
