Roses Citadel, Roses

4.3
Roses Citadel represents the ruins of a military fortification used for several centuries. Built by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, the citadel protected the area against pirate and French attacks. The museum within the complex houses amphorae, rusty canons, ancient locks, sickles, anchors, axes, and other artifacts excavated on site. Check out the remains of a Greek settlement, a Roman villa, a few Visigoth buildings, and the earliest known Lombard-style monastery from the 11th century.

  • We spent about two hours visiting the exhibition and grounds. What a special place with so much history. Beautifully preserved and presented. Highly recommended for a relatively cheap entry fee.  more »

  • Excellent look into the past 2,000 years of this area. Museum is good with English crib card available (would be improved to have permanent English text at display). Outside is great to walk around and be close up to history. Excellent and very helpful, friendly staff on reception.
  • Cool castle, worth a run round.
  • A great place to visit and the price is cheap compared to British castles.
  • Nice
