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!

It is worth driving down to Bolonia and wander around the ruins if you have spare time. It is a long drive from Seville and not too much of a drive from Cadiz but it is worth it. The amphitheatre is still intact and quite...More

As you follow the boardwalk along this beach in an achingly beautiful valley, you will pass close to the ruins. Don't be tempted to think that you might as well just see it from there. Do make the effort to go round the museum and...More
