Nice roman villa with superb mosaic to admire if it is open; an openair museum, very interesting for familys.

Our hotel was next door to to Els Ametllers Roman Villa. We visited it a few times. The site is well looked after and is well preserved. Great views of the town. I found the visit very interesting and it free to enter.
