Roman Villa of Els Munts (MNAT)
This villa was most likely built in the 1st century and is believed to have been occupied until the 6th or 7th century. It is located in Altafulla, 14 km outside of Tarragona, on a small hillock near the sea. The cisterns used to provide water are positioned at the top of the hill, whilst the slopes were devoted to residential areas and two bathing complexes. The exquisite statues, tiles, murals, mosaics and marble columns that remain leave no room for doubt as to the standing of the owner, a high-ranking official in the Tarraco government. Some of the materials are on display at the Tarragona National Archaeology Museum. In summer, tours can be taken with re-enactments of life at the villa in the Roman era.
