Els Munts Roman Villa | Cultural Heritage. Goverment of Catalonia.
Els Munts Roman Villa Luxury in the Tarraco style
If there is one place that will tell you what the lifestyle of the Roman elites must have been like, it is here at Els Munts Villa.
The luxurious residence of one of the most important officials of Tàrraco has stood atop a hill near Altafulla beach since the second century AD. In this idyllic location, the remains of a large complex are on display: the baths, the residential area, buildings for agricultural work and even the remains of a mithrae for cult rituals.
The splendour of many of the sculptures found at the site can be admired at the National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona. The paintings and mosaics are preserved on site and can be discovered as you walk around the villa.
In addition to being one of the best-preserved aristocratic villas in Roman Hispania, Els Munts is surrounded by other sites that together make up the Tarraco archaeological complex, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000.
