Small museum but very well presented helpful lady at the reception and the site is free to visit too. The is a visual room running a continual video and objects excavated from the site. Well worth a visit if in Albir - find it near the rear of the hotel Kaktus.

Some basic roman ruins with good information on boards to read.

Free to enter but you can hire a tablet which tells you more while walking around for €3. There may be a room with info but it was closed.

This small musem is close to the seafront and looks to be newly established. Not sure of the history as it was closed when we walked past (see my pic for opening times). However, you can see a lot of the excavation area from along the perimeter fencing. To be honest I didn’t realise the Romans conquered this far south and I would have been interested to have a look round - although I have to say it all looks suspiciously “remodelled” to my cynical untrained eye.

This is one of those attractions that does exactly what it says on the tin in that there are displayed here the remains of a Roman Villa.

The site isn’t massive but seeing as it’s free you can’t complain too much. What I like about this attraction is that there is meaningful overhead protection from the elements, whether it be from rain or sun, when at the villa proper, so allowing you a little more time and conditions in which to appreciate the archaeological finds. The villa surround walking area is elevated and safe allowing you opportunity to wander around it and get closer to some aspects / areas.

Further, I quite like the model of the villa et al (ie lots of bathing areas contained therein), as you enter the site, as it is all thought to have been in place originally. Interesting, thought provoking and a genuine insight into Roman life and times in the locale.

There is also a small museum / screening area adjoining the site at the entrance also with free entry. There is a short film in Spanish (but with English subtitles) which portrays the way in which the villa may have been used by it’s occupants.

You just have to tell the man where you are from ie residence overseas (city and country suffices) – opening times are peculiar so check first so as not to be disappointed. It seems to be open latest on a Saturday and even then closes at 2pm.

Give it a go !

Having been to Cyprus - which is littered with amazing Roman sites - it was such a nice surprise to find this little archeological gem in Albir.

Free, well presented, very interesting and the graves/skeletons of the small children were very moving. Do watch the film and spend time reading the info before looking at the actual dig remains.

You have to like history/archeology to appreciate this... so its lucky that I do!!
