Amazing to see actual history and be able to walk through the ruins. The kids, ages 7/10/15, all enjoyed the museum and the walk. It made it easy to explain the history and definitely peaked their interest!

Had heard about Baelo Claudia but had no idea it would be so good. It's free if you are a citizen of a UE country but at only 1.50€ entry in any case it's well worth the visit. Wow, those Romans could build. Little more...More

Breathtaking! An amazingly well-preserved Roman ruin on the shore of the bluest ocean I have ever seen. The fact that you can walk through it out in the open and the great variety of structures give you some sense of going back to that time....More

The Romans landed on the shores of the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the 3rd century BC as they sought control of the Western Mediterranean. The ruins can be found at the beach in Bolonia, just west of Tarifa. It's a small sight, but...More
