“Interesting visit and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Kids and adults loved it. Interesting not just because of the ruins but also the stories about fishing and migrant workers from Africa (which you can actually see). It was very cheap to get in, the only mistake we did was getting there around 1 pm and it was very hot (not much shade outside). After the visit we went to the beach at Bolonia, mostly locals there, and on the way back we stopped at Tarifa.

“Unknown secret”

Don't miss visiting this. The only thing we don't understand is the timetable: Open from 10 to 2
You'll have to drive...

“Great setting on the Atlantic coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is a delightful Roman site just north of Tarifa on the road south from Cadiz. There are no large remains of buildings but the site is well laid-out with concise information boards as you walk round the suggested route. It is easy to comprehend that this was a proper Roman town with plenty of more mundane buildings as well as the usual temple sites, theatre etc. Well worth a leisurely hour or two and the setting just above the sandy beach just adds to the ambience. Free admission with EU passport.
