Roman Villa of Els Ametllers

Address:Av. del Pelegrí, 5 - 13. 17320 Tossa de Mar
Price: 2.00 €

Tossa de Mar was colonized by the Romans, under the name of Turissa. Vila dels Ametllers (that is, Almond Villa), located in the mound of Sant Magi, very next to the center, is the best preserved roman zone and shows the remains of warehouses, oil and press, bedrooms and thermae. Therefore this ancient villa combined a work area with private rooms, clearly separated. We will find some beautifully crafted mosaics. Experts believe that this villa was occupied between the II BC and IV A.D centuries. The Municipal Museum of Tossa de Mar also preserves many of the findings from their excavations.

    From the north side of Platja de Lloret beach, you can walk about 20 minutes to the upper town (called Lloret de Dalt) to visit the discrete remains of a Roman tomb dating from the second century AD. In fact this tomb, which unfortunately was demolished in 1967 with the urn containing the remains of the unknown person buried, and rebuilt with the same materials a year later, is located in an ancient necropolis in this place called Can Avellaners de Can Sala, where today nothing is preserved. The tower was discovered and excavated in 1891.
