Baños de la reina, is a Roman site, located in front of a bay, and sheltered by the Penyal D’Ifach, and is a coastal enclave that is known for its magnificent architectural design and its mosaics, one of the most important collections of its kind in all of Roman Hispania. Not all of it has been excavated so far, but it is still enough to discern the magnitude of this Roman villae fitted with all kinds of luxuries 2,000 years ago. The pools carved out of the coastal rock, used to supply fresh fish, led to the name of the enclave which is still used today. You can take a swim in the old Roman ruins, which in itself is an experience.WEB
