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.
