The Citadel was an unexpected feature in our visit to Roses. The site is huge, and mostly consists of ruins and remains, but it is well explained and interesting whether you are a real history enthusiast or not. We aren't but found it fascinating to...More

Museum and citadel demonstrates very well thousands of years history of Roses. Inside are artifacts found in the area explained in many languages.

Spent a few hours here on a cloudy day in Roses. Very interesting site with lots of history and exhibits about the growth and decline of the citadel. You can walk on the walls and there are great views from many of the towers.

An amazing place well laid out and individual signage in each section gives you a valuable insight into the diffrent civilisations that have built and lived there. Entrance cost was very reasonable and included entrance into the museum.

A fascinating look back into the remarkable history of this town. All the exhibits were well maintained and well laid out, although the visitor's map took a few minutes to get to grips with. Work is still going on at the site, uncovering new finds....More
