Roman wine press

Address:c/ Coral. 17211 Llafranc
Price: free of charge

The Roman wine press was found in Coral Street, a few meters from the Llafranc beach in 1999, and has its origin in the first century after Christ. It is another evidence of the important Roman villa that was here at the time, taking advantage of the excellent port of Llafranc, protected from the north winds. In the village there was also a cellar (very near the Church of Santa Rosa) and a tombstone necropolis as shown next the press, with a touching inscription from Caesarea widow to her husband Carudo.
