Roman villa of Vilauba

Address:Ctra. de Pujarnol GIV-5247 Km. 1.6. 17834 Camós

Vilauba Roman Villa is located just over 1 kilometer south of Lake Banyoles, in the village of Camós, and was occupied between centuries II BC until the VII century A.C. Some objects and little statues that have been found here are showed in the Archaeological Museum of Banyoles, where guided tours are organised to visit this place. The site is fenced but it is visible clearly from the road. Of the remains preserved we infer that this villa was dedicated to make wine and olive oil.
