Calagurris — A settlement in Tarraconensis also known as Calahorra
Calagurris was a town in Hispania Terraconensis, which was conquered by Rome in 187 BC. Under the Romans it reached its highest point of importance as an administrative centre for surrounding regions.

Calagurris supported Quintus Sertorius in his war against Pompey, whom the city resisted successfully since 76 BC. It was only taken four years later by Pompey's legate Lucius Afranius, after a lot of inhabitants had died from starvation and there had occurred cannibalism. Julius Caesar and Augustus Caesar gave the city numerous distinctions, converted it into a municipality, and developed its city planning, economy, and politics.

After the rule of the Moors in the 9th and 10th centuries, García Sánchez III of Navarre captured the city in 1045.
