The history of the town of Roses goes back to the Paleolithic as the first settlement. If you spend a weekend in Roses you can not miss a walk in the mountains and make the route of the dolmens. From the top of the mountain you will see the bay of Roses from another perspective.
Subsequently, the Greek population from Marseille settled. Their traces by the passage of time are found in the excavations that have been made in the wall of Roses in which remains of minted coins were found.
The Romans developed pottery, livestock and wine production, so important today. In the middle ages the population settled on the mountain path of Puig Rom where they created the architecture of the Visigothic people.
After a few years, approximately in the sixteenth century the citadel of Roses and the Trinity Castle were built. Both fortresses were created to defend against pirates and invaders that came from the sea and the land.
And it is not until the mid-nineteenth century that modernist buildings are built on the seafront. And from the 60s with the massification of tourism Roses was completely transformed to the town we observe today.
