I found a couple of sequences belonging to the mt-DNA L2a1a3 from Portugal:

I was reviewing a couple of genetic studies and noticed that L2a1, which could very well be L2a1a or anything under L2a1 was found in 1 sample out of 24 in Catalonia per the study by Garcia.et.al.2011. It was also found in 1 out of 25 people from Burgos as per the study by Martinez-Cruz.et.al.2012, what is interesting is that it is found amongst populations in Spain that aren't known for having L lineages. It has HVR-I matches with the sample from Catalonia, the sample from Burgos doesn't show the HVR-I, but the two Neolithic circa 6800 BC-6000 BC samples from Syria do show matches as well. Interestingly enough the two L2 lineages found in Tres Montes, Navarra show HVR-I 16261T, 16278T 16294T, 16309G these two lineages where dated two 2130 BC.

So we have:

Catalonia Sample(n=1):
HVR-I: 129 223 278 294 309 390
HVR-II: n/a

Syrian Samples (n=2) 6800 BC -6000 BC

HVR-I: 16223T, 16261T, 16278T, 16294T, 16309G
HVR-II: n/a

Tres Montes, Navarra samples (n=2) 2130 BC

HVR-I: 16261T, 16278T 16294T, 16309G
HVR-II: n/a

My mother's 23andme data from raw data browsing:

16129: No call
16223: C=>T transition
16261: C
16278: C=>T transition
16294: Not genotyped
16309: Not genotyped
16390: G=>A transition.

So it seems that my mt-DNA is not similar to those found in Neolithic Syria or Tres Montes, Navarra as they differ in the mutation in 16261, since my moms is 16261C, and the other two are 16261T. Now the Catalonian sample doesn't appear to have a mutation at position 16261, since the allele C is that of rCRS, so the question is, is it African then?

It is African, but probably came back to Europe with the Europeans who migrated to Africa from Iberia and after came back with some African lineages. Perhaps more than 10,000 years ago. Don't ask me now the paper, but I read it and remember it very well.
Perhaps those Europeans carried to Africa many European lineages, like mt H etc and perhaps R1b1 (V88+?).
