Ciutadella de Roses
The Ciutadella de Roses is an archaeological site with more than 25 centuries of history located northwest of the current city of Roses, in the Upper Empordà.
After many years closed and abandoned, this walled enclosure of 139,000 m2 was opened to the public and, in 1993, was considered a Cultural Asset of National Interest (BCIN) in 1993.
Currently, inside you can see the remains of the Hellenistic quarter of the Greek colony of "Rhode", the Roman villa, the paleo-Christian necropolis, buildings from the Visigothic era, the Lombard Romanesque monastery of Santa Maria and remains of the medieval fortified urban center, military buildings of the last occupation of the sixteenth century.
Today it also houses the Museum of History of the Ciutadella, a museum where visitors can learn about the history and cultural heritage of Roses from prehistory to the most recent time, and an Exhibition Hall.
