Els Munts Villa

© Gary Cralle

A Roman villa located inside the municipal boundaries of Altafulla. Built in the time of Augustus, it was rebuilt in the 2nd century A.D. and inhabited until at least the 7th century, having been destroyed by a fire in the 3rd century A.D. The sheer size and wealth of this country manor is noteworthy, whose surviving residential area features an impressive set of mosaics and murals as well as a magnificent bathing complex with mosaic decorations, marble plaques and statuary. There is a second bathing complex on the beach.  Some of the materials found on the site are on display at the Tarragona National Archaeological Museum.
