Roman villa of Torre de Benagalbón

It is a fine example of villae a mare, a coastal residential complex comprising an industrial area around it, which occupies almost 1,200 m². The whole complex boasts excellent, well-preserved polychrome mosaics.

The archaeological site dates from the 8th to 3rd centuries BCE. It includes the remains of a wall, a bath complex and a Roman villa decorated with mosaics, as well as a garum factory and a salting one. Phoenician ceramics and several Roman sculptures have also been found, including an ancient head of the god Bacchus dating from the 2nd century. This Roman villa has been declared a Heritage Site of Cultural Interest (BIC).
