Worthy of a two to three hour visit to walk Citadal walls and grounds dating back to 11th century and in addition museum containing material from Greek era onwards. Highly recommended

The remains of the ancient citadel of Roses is just across the main street from the beach front and makes for an excellent couple of hours visit. A fascinating piece of history.

The museum is very interesting and informative, We didn't have a chance to go outside as it was very very windy the day we went. The best thing is it is free for over 65s

Well worth a visit if you're in Roses. It's cheap to enter and will take you between an hour or two to get around it all. Make sure you follow the information booklet so that you don't miss anything. The only thing I would say...More

At 4 EUR/adult and free for children, this may be a nice stop if you are passionate about ancient cultures and ruins. Otherwise, it's not much to see, and 30 minutes may be more than enough.

Much more to see than i thought initially. Long history and multiple extentions and wars during the years have made a place worth spending a few hours at.
