The Arc is opposite the entrance to the Playa Bara Parc. Built when the Romans occupied the area.Now it's in the middle of a very busy traffic island, which makes it very dangerous to cross to. Not for children or those slow of the mark...More

Worth taking a walk from the Park Playa Bara campsite if you are staying there. There is information in several languages so that you can find out more about the Arc. Beware of the very busy traffic though passing either side of you!

This is a very simple monument but still is worthy to see it. It is a very old Roman Arch (2000 years old) just located on a national road. Easy access and good to see when going to some nice little town in the area...More

A beautiful Roman arch situated along the historic Augustine way. Sadly it is now stuck in the middle of the N340 highway right by the Playa Bara campsite. It made a great landmark for us as we were staying at Playa Bara. Traffic whizzing by...More
