ELS MUNTS ROMAN VILLA (ALTAFULLA)

Primarily focused on agrarian production, the Els Munts Roman Villa comprises several beautifully decorated structures. Chronologically, the site was occupied between the rule of Augustus and the fall of the Roman Empire.

The complex is strategically poised atop a small rise near the shoreline and the mouth of the GaiĆ  River. The villa's merchandise could be shipped directly by waterway or over land down the Via Augusta, which ran astride the settlement.

The material extracted during several archaeological campaigns has been conserved in the National Archaeology Museum of Tarragona.
