A view of Barcalos's City Hall, facing east
Barcalos is a port city in the Southwest of the Creative 1.12 map. The city has an approximate area of 0.39 square kilometers, with 53 buildings and an estimated population of 350 residents. The name Barcalos is a direct derivation from the modern Spanish city Barcelona
Barcalos was founded in July of 2017 by Trusted verajasper and subsequently approved on the 17th of August by Moderator LykaiosFelan, Operator Emfitty, and Admin Wairoa.
Barcalos was ceded to Member MattDB in late 2017, and remained a work in progress until Member MrMuffinFish resumed efforts in the city in early December. These efforts were spearheaded by the construction of a large port, and building has continued in the city since. MattDB ceded the city to MrMuffinFish in early 2018.
In March of 2018, MrMuffinFish began an ambitious and ongoing project to connect Barcalos with the cities of West Somewhere (Owner: Trusted Potato123) and Avalon (Owner: Operator Dantosky) by road and rail, as well as the island city of Savoie Maritime (Owner: Trusted Potato123) by sea. A bridge between the mesa north of West Somewhere and the coast south of Barcalos has begun to be constructed approximately 1.6 km SSW of the Barcalos City Hall. Rail connections to Avalon have been planned but not yet constructed.
In June of 2018, MrMuffinFish, MattDB, and Operator masterboatman hatched an ongoing plan to connect and develop the far Southwest of the map with highways.
One Year Anniversary
In preparation for Barcalos's one year anniversary on August 17th, 2018, MrMuffinFish has revamped the city and expanded greatly, in anticipation for a parade and festival.
With City Hall at (-9760, 80, 5035) Barcalos is located 11 km WSW of Spawn on the West Coast of the Tiberian Peninsula, facing the Sea of Ganymede on a plain approximately 2.6 km wide, limited by the Morelese Hills, the River Douro to the North and East, and the River Aragon to the South. The plain covers an area of 1.3 square kilometers, 0.39 of which are the city itself. The city shares no land borders with other cities, and is separated from Avalon by the Morelese Hills. Bridges connect Barcalos to land North and East, and a planned bridge to West Somewhere will connect Barcalos to the most Western regions of the map.
