Geography

Location

Ampuria is located in the northwest of the Pais de Volisanha. The city is divided by the Bay of Ampuria, a natural harbor bounding the RIVER Estuary where the former Mesogean city was founded. Following the model of Theodosia, the historic peninsula is said to be characterized by seven hills, each topped by cathedrals. The easternmost of these hills is the site of NAME Palace on the PROMONTORY. Rising from the opposite side of the NAME River is another, conical hill, where the modern DISTRICT 1 is. Because of the topography, buildings in DISTRICT 1 were once constructed with the help of terraced retaining walls, and roads were laid out in the form of steps. DISTRICT 2 on the Western Bay side exhibits similarly hilly characteristics, with the terrain gradually extending down to the Mesogean coast, but the landscape in DISTRICT 3 and DISTRICT 4 is more abrupt, akin to a promontory. The highest point in Ampuria is NAME Hill, with an altitude of 288 meters. The northwest of Ampuria has a higher mean elevation compared to other areas, with locations surpassing 200 meters, and some coasts with steep cliffs resembling fjords, or the Shesasvlelis in Varkana, especially around the northern end of the Bay, where it opens up to the Mesogean Sea.

Climate

Ampuria has a Mesogean climate (Köppen climate classification: Csa). Its proximity to the Mesogean Sea and the Neptic Ocean aids in moderating the city's temperatures. As a result, Ampuria usually does not see the drier temperatures that are experienced in the adjacent interior. The summers are relatively hot and sunny and the winters are wet and mild.

Cityscape

One of the most recognizable landmark of the city is the Pont de la Badia, the tallest steel arch bridge in the world, which connects the districts of DISTRICT ? and DISTRICT ? across the Bay of Ampuria. The view of the bridge, the Bay, and the nearby Ampuria Opera House is widely regarded as an iconic image of Ampuria. The bridge is nicknamed "El Penjador" ("The Coathanger") because of its arch-based design.

Districts

Architecture and housing

Ampuria is primarily known for its Volisanian architecture, but its buildings reflect the various peoples and times that have previously transformed the city. Examples of Mesogean architecture remain visible in Ampuria alongside their Volisanian counterparts. Nothing of the architecture of the classical Aetolian period has survived, but Mesogean architecture has proved to be more durable. The obelisk erected by "Theodosius" in the Hippodrome of Ampuria is still visible in NAME Square, and a section of the NAME Aqueduct, constructed in the late 4th century, stands relatively intact at the western edge of DISTRICT ?.

Ampuria surpass both Koblenz and Castejon real estate prices, having some of the most expensive in the world.

Religion

Much like the rest of Volisania, Ampuria is predominantly Christian, and the city has been an important center of religion and pilgrimage for centuries.

The first gods held sacred by the Ampurians were Jupiter, the Most High, and Neptune, the god of the sea, according to tradition. Other deities such as TBD and TBD were honored. Ampuria was also the base of several mystery cults, such as TBD.

The Ampuria financial elite was strengthened by strong Jewish and Dinaric communities capable of mastering the most sophisticated financial tools of the time. This unique concentration of talents accelerated the transition from the Commercial Revolution to the Industrial Revolution.
