  • Located on the small hill of Sant Magi, we visit the remains of the Roman villa of Turissa (the latin name of Tossa de Mar): the Vila dels Ametllers (Villa of almonds). Based on the results of the archaeological work done in this field, we know that this village was occupied between the centuries BC II C. and IV of our era. The Vila dels Ametllers, mainly dedicated to the cultivation of the vine and l ' export of wines for mass consumption, it is a classic example of the Roman Mediterranean farming operation. Distributed in different terraces, the base is a rural area consisting of warehouses, oil tanks and a press. Higher, we find rooms with bathrooms paved with mosaics. All well demonstrates the importance of this villa, because it includes a thermal set, a tile, a pool with sculptures and a dining room as well as a fountain.

  • Nice place to visit this archaeological site with roman culture and is a outdoor museum with free entrance. To see all this is took 20 - 30 minutes. 
  • The mosaics of the Villa were near our hotel, excavations have free entrance, visit only talented, stream small fans. The Villa is located on the top and bottom of the terrace, the main house and outbuildings. Nice mosaics, colored, lie right in front of your feet. Interesting jumping from stone to stone, studying ruins, introducing themselves on this villa in times of its heyday. Swapped mosaic was replaced by modern substrate, apparently removed the part for the Museum, but what was left, it is interesting to watch. It seems that this place recently was a place of attraction for tourists, perhaps even with a paid entrance, infrastructure and some modern details to circumvent this attraction on the Boardwalk, there are traces of lighting equipment, exposure illumination, stairs, handrails ... Now, when the place is very democratic, free to attend, it does not lose its attractiveness even more naturally to stay. Photographed and wandered over the remains of villas quite often, very pleasant, picturesque, romantic, Tosse this place and enjoy.
