Baelo Claudia – Roman town in Bolonia near Tarifa

Baelo Claudia is an ancient Roman town, around 22 km along the coast from Tarifa in the village of Bolonia. Lying directly on the beach, it was originally a Roman fishing town and a trade link around 2,000 years ago. The temples, residential area, forum and amphitheatre can be seen as well as vats for salting and producing garum (fermented fish sauce) from tuna fish. There is also a museum with interesting Roman artefacts to explore.
