In touch with History
Feb 2020
This is an interesting archaeological site from the Roman period. Partly this is the remnants of an antique "Cannery Row", where the standard Roman fish preserve Garum was manufactured and "canned" in locally produced amphoras. The other part is a Roman bath. Unfortunately, we did not get access to the latter, it was closed and the website was a bit vague about the opening hours.This site will take you a bit out of your way, still it is well within walking distance from central Fuengirola and comes with a café that serves lunch, You can sit in the shade and eat overlooking the site.

Interesting site
Feb 2020
This site is free to enter and has an interesting visitor information center as well as a clear and accessible route around the excavations. Unusual to see the fish salting and pickling plant and pottery as well as the much more common bath house. Some of the mosaic is still in place too.

Great history
Dec 2018
This is quite good, okay a heap of rumble, but if you think of all the ancients who worked in the pottery and fishery. The bath house is interesting to see , or imagine the conversations that took place...

Hidden gem
Dec 2018 • Solo
A little hard to find but worth seeking out.
Site is next to the Jazzy Bar and opposite a VW dealership, approx 100 metres from the Los Boliches train station in Fuengirola.

A little surprising there is no roof to protect the mosaics which are exposed to the elements.

Roman ruins next to the train linr

An interesting site with free entry that shows that Fuengirola has a history dating back centuries. A short walk from the sea front.

Roman ruins
Sep 2018
Wow !!! What a hidden gem !!! If you like history this is a must see in my opinion. Located by the Los Boliches train station next to the Jazzy Bar. It's free to look around. My only concern was that if this were in England English Heritage would be all over it to ensure it was protected and covered. These ruins are probably around 1500 years old and are still open to the elements.
