    A wonderful Roman ruins and the stunning sea. We can say nothing wrong. Just want to tell the little shame of people in front of us some U.S. tourists bundled to touch the stones of one of the walls and with the nonsense were carried in the hands several of them, that if said out loud because we hear them speaking in perfect Spanish that if every visitor takes a stone and will take the already there would be nothing to do but passed topic the second option was to alert persons that they were guarding that they were and they were watching to see if they were something more. So please do not do that. And that neither is smoking even if it is outdoors and for the record, I am a smoker

    It is a visit that is to an archaeological site that reveals as well that did the ancestors who settled on these shores. It is worth and if you go with children is a must-see. Attention that does not open every day

  • This archaeological site is OK, not bad for a quick walk around, free entry and good parking. Not what i'd call a day out but pretty good for an hour or 2 at most
  • . Free! (until after Brexit) . If you are a EU citizen you get in free. Just show your passport. Nice to know that our money is being spent well! The museum is fascinating, with good descriptions of the models of the Roman town, how they made the rotted-fish-sauce (Yuk!) that was so popular in Rome. Not wheelchair friendly, however. Thought the EU insisted on that? The ruins themselves - which are still being excavated, were absolutely beautiful on a sunny day in April. Blue sky, blue sea, yellow sand glistening under the sunshine, wild flowers, a carpet of wild flowers, lining the paths. And some stupendous relics and remains of temples, rotted-fish-sauce factory, villas, amphitheatre and forum. Some excellent explanations too. A very pleasant excursion, although we found it hot on an April morning walking under the sun with no welcoming shade anywhere. it would be unbearable in the summer months, even with hats and suncream and water bottles. Highly recommended .
  • This place was everything I expected and more. It costs just 1.50 € unless you are an EU citizen (they get in free). The museum is small and many exhibits are copies, as the originals are in larger museums, but the ruins themselves are in remarkable shape. There are frequent placards to describe what is known about each building. The ruins are extensive and excavations are still in progress.
  • The ruins aren't stunning but they are quaint and peaceful right next to the ocean. The museum is great for being a relatively small archaeological site.
  • Great place. Beautiful Roman ruins and big sand dunes.
