You need to visit this place to experience the magic of it. Suitable for all ages, and the best part is that it is just right next to the gorgeous Bolonia beach. Definitely worth to visit.

Baelo Claudia is an impressive Roman city behind an amazing beach. The visit is cheap (free if you are a European Union citizen), walking around gives you a unique feeling, the museum is informative... what more do you want? Go, and you won't regret it!

So little publicity is offered about this magnificent site, and one should definitely make the effort to visit (mínimum one hour). Entrance is free for European nationals. The marked itinerary is easy to follow. The modern museum houses a plethora of information regarding the site...More
