    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.

    Dolmen Can Mina dels Torrents is 1 km far away from Llafranc center, in the middle of the wood, so it is highly recommended a visit by a walk. It is an ancient tomb, with no corridor, built between 3400 and 3000 BC. The maximum length inside is 2.10 meters and height is 1.60 meters. It is believed that around it had a cromlech though, because of being on a former vineyard field, it was removed.
