“The inventions of man”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Take your camera,the Banos are reached part way along the promenade if heading from Calpe towards the rock (Penon) then first look for the mermaids carved in the rocks on the bend by Neptune then another 200 yards to the Banos which are clearly signed.The water is exceptionally clear and although part eroded it can be seen how they allowed fish in to the pools and then retained them so that the town had fresh fish all the time.Opposite are the excavations but progress by the archaeological teams is very slow because of legal battles ,one supposes much more of the Phoenecian history is lost forever under Spains many apartment blocks.If elderly be aware that although the signs say no cyclists there are and you may not hear them coming.

“Very interesting ruins”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Unfortunately, there is very little information offered on the small signs and most of the ruins are behind a chain link fence.

“Look and study”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Years ago, there was nothing but earth and rock. Admiration for the archaeological teams has been clouded by the "Business Interests" that nearly flattened Calpe's Roman and Visigoth history. The Information Boards ar full of necessary details, but an awful lot remains unfinished, while the landowners battle with the aesthetes. We await.

“LOVELY ROMAN RUINES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

The ruins of the baños de la reina are located near the town's promenade actual in the sea. They are a great example of roman ruins. All part of Calpe’s rich local history.
