Map of San Gerardo and surroundings.
The island of San Gerardo is located off the southern coast of the Balearic Island of Mallorca. With a population of just over a million spread across two metropolitan cities and several dozen small fishing villages, San Gerardo is one of the world's most densely populated islands in the world. The city was originally founded by Greek colonists in the 8th century BCE and has remained populated ever since.
The population of Siccalium and Santa Julieta are primarily of Greek and Spanish origin. The region has been an area of cultural conflation for centuries as Greek Platonism and Latin Christianity dueled for the intellectual throne for centuries. The island was briefly held by the the Berber empire and enjoyed an influx of philosophical and scientific ideas from the east as Baghdad. As such, Siccalium and Santa Julieta have always been a small but crucial stop in the exchange of knowledge and culture between Islamic North Africa and Christian Europe.   cityhall

Would you be able to help us catch up after a bit of a shortfall?

We had a small shortfall last month. Your donation today would help us catch up for this month.

Make a Donation, Get a Gift!

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.

Each donation helps keep Simtropolis online, open and free!
