The roman villa of dels Munts

It is to be found 12km from Tarragona, between Altafulla and Torredembarra, and is one of the best preserved roman aristocratic villas that remain in the world. It was built at the beginning of the second century A.D. The mansion was the residence of a high-ranking member of the Tarraco administration and was frequented by the elites of the roman city. It’s location near the beach gave its residents a peaceful existence within the rural life, without renouncing luxury.

Incredible: We know the name of one of the owners of the villa, Cayo Valerio Avito, thanks to three historical footprints: A painting in the cistern where his name appears together with that of his wife Faustina, A seal with his name used to mark cloth produced on the site, and finally, a print from the XIX Century where one can see a pedestal with his name inscribed alongside his political position, which was Duunviro or Mayor of the city.
