Those of us used to Roman sites in Northern Europe where too often there is virtually nothing left to see may be very pleasantly surprised by the details on this site. Don't be put off by the fact that there is no obvious entrance - you have to go through the Jazzy Bar to get in - and no detailed... More

These remains are worth a visit consisting of kilns, fish salting buildings and a thermae. The explanations in English are helpful with plan and relevant photographs. The bath complex has a mosaic in what was the small inner courtyard. Situated near Los Boliches station found a few hundred metres on the left side of the main road as you walk... More

Worth the walk to find it from Los Boliches area easy enough, a simple street map will do the job. Interesting history on plenty of signs.

This is a pleasant spot to visit if your past experience of Roman Ruins is limited but, in reality there isn't a lot to see. Having said that however, it is free to enter and there is now a very good, friendly cafe in what was once the entrance office. There used to be live music on Saturday nights in... More

When you first walk in the salting and kiln area may seem a bit disappointing with little left to help your imagination. However, the thermae area beyond the raised viewing walkway has some nice remains with the baths themselves quite intact. There is also a nice area of mosaic although access is limited, for good reason.

Interesting to see especially as it is surrounded by modern apartment blocks. Nice bar to sit and have a peaceful drink.

Not a huge site, but well worth a visit if you are in fuengirola. There is also a perfect little bar on the site, overlooking the ruins. The ruins are found right at the end of fuengirola towards malaga, very near Avenida de las Gaviotas and the sea. Disregard the location on trip advisor.

Read about this site online but the address provided turned out to be incorrect- evetually located a mile further out of Fuengirola on Avenue Nuestro Padre Jesus Cautivo next to Jazzy bar. The site contains ruins of a fish salting works and roman bath and is crammed in an unlikely setting between two major roads and some flats. The site... More
