Charming villages near Roses

The Bay of Roses hides a very important historical legacy. Its privileged geographical location made it a port of entry for many civilizations; Greeks and Romans left their mark on the territory with plenty of traditions and customs and many traditional constructions.

In the Alt Empordà there are many megalithic remains in the form of menhirs and dolmens, scattered throughout the Verdera Mountains. The most important and best preserved of these, the Dolmen de la Creu de Cobertella (3000-2700 BC), is to be found in Roses. The Citadel of Roses, the Castle of San Ferran in Figueras or the Basilica of Castelló d'Empúries, invite us to explore this little piece of history. It also allows us to visit charming places where we can enjoy the views and the rich local gastronomy.
