What to see Discover the area's rich history by visiting the Ciudadela (Citadel). This major archaeological site still has the remains of an ancient Greek settlement, as well as a Roman villa, a Paleochristian necropolis and a Romanesque monastery dating back to the 11th century. For a fabulous panoramic view of the bay, go along to La Trinidad castle. And be sure to take a stroll around the town centre. It spreads out from Santa María church and one of its most fascinating buildings is the Modernist house known as Casa Mallol. To discover its seafaring tradition, visit the fishing port. You'll be able to watch an auction at the fish market or spend the day on a fishing trip. Nature and active tourism The Costa Brava has no end of idyllic beaches where you can enjoy a day in the sun. Many of the coves offer unspoilt scenery as they lie within the Cap de Creus Nature Reserve. The crystal-clear waters make it an ideal place for snorkelling. There are also many hiking routes that are designed for experts and beginners alike. They're the perfect way to explore the bay, olive groves and traditional country houses. Gastronomy The local cuisine combines tradition with creativity. Fresh fish is the basis of most dishes and we especially recommend trying “suquet de peix” (a delicious fish stew). Roses is home to the foundation set up by renowned chef Ferrán Adrià
