Other user descriptions
Asmara is the capital and largest city of Eritrea. It has about 578,000 inhabitants (1,062,676 in the urban area) (2006). It is located at 15 ° 20 'North, 38 ° 55' East and it is located much of the textiles, processed meat, beer, shoes and ceramics in the country. Asmara was formed in the twelfth century from four villages as a trading post and later as the capital of Prince Ras Alula. It was colonized by Italy in 1889, becoming the national capital in 1897. In late 1930, the Italians changed the face of the city with new structures and new buildings was then called "Piccola Roma" (Little Rome). Currently most of the buildings are of Italian origin and some places have names in that language (ie "Bar Vittoria," "modern Pasticceria", "House of formaggio", "Ferramenta"). During the war for independence from Ethiopia, the city's airport became the key to the conflict, and was used by the Eritreans to obtain arms and supplies from outside. The last city to fall into the hands of the People's Liberation Front Eritrea's war of independence was achieved in 1990 and the Ethiopian army troops surrendered without a fight on May 24, 1991.
