Los Angeles was founded in 1781, 235 years ago. This was at the time when L.A., California, and most of western U.S. was ruled by Spain. L.A. didn't become a U.S. city until 1850 which was the same year California became a state.

Pretty old for an American sunbelt city.

Barcelona, Spain. Was founded according to rumours (not archeological evidences) by the general Amílcar Barca, father of Aníbal in the 230BC.
After, romans re-founden the city as Colonia Iulia Augusta Paterna Faventia Barcino, in the 218BC

Sharjah, UAE is apparently in the 200-300 category

"Human settlement in the area covered by the emirate has existed for over 500,000 years, with significant finds made of early axes and stone tools as well as Copper and Iron Age implements in Al Dhaid, Madam and Faya.[4] Historically the emirate was one of the wealthiest towns in the region.[5]

Around 1727, the Al Qasimi clan took control of Sharjah and declared the polity independent.[citation needed]"

Oslo is over 1000 years old but has two alternative founding years, either roughly 950 AD or roughly 1000 AD.

The earliest known settlement in Istanbul dates from 6700 BC, discovered in 2008, during the construction works of the Yenikapı subway station and the Marmaray tunnel at the historic peninsula on the European side.

So Istanbul is at least 8700 years old It might be older but the Turkish authorities couldn't dig in that deep yet.

Strasbourg was founded in 12 BC as a Roman military camp, known as Argentoratum.

I have always known that Istambul was older that people think, this strategic place couldn't be so modern.
You know if there is a map or a draw of Istambul before the roman foundation?
