  • Since childhood, I have about 50 years, I have visited the ruins. The recent restoration and Museum have made the area to lose its charm and wild views. Makes a week went and came demoralized... a penalty

  • Call them fools the Romans, this archaeological complex is located in a strategic position as mind blowing. In front of the sea and behind the mound. The views are spectacular and well worth a visit if you are around here because it's free!

  • It is worth approaching and see these ruins of the city of Baelo Claudia in the beach of Bologna for their conservation.

  • 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.
  • Nice remains of the old Roman city. Great scenery surrounding the ruins.
  • Brilliant site, free of charge with lots of interesting buildings and exhibitions.
  • Good. But don't let your sat nav tell you to park down near the beach - take the road up from town and park near the new museum building.
  • Very well preserved, for the average Roman ruins that exist in Spain, and the distribution of thistle can see perfectly and, decumeno, so essential and typical of such cities. In summer, there are few shadows and enough heat, so should go to first hour. The Museum is now more cool.
