Panoramic views of the mountain peaks on one side of Roses and gorgeous golden beaches on another side make this place absolutely stunning.

The origins of Roses (Greek: Rhodes) going back to the 8th century BC when the first settlers arrived here from ancient Greece. Here, they founded the town and named it Rhodes in honor of their homeland.

There are some reminders of the town's glorious past that are worth to visit:

the 16th century Citadel covers more than 130,000 square metres and contains the remains of the original town of Rhodes, dating back to 776 BC.

Roses also has three "dolmens" (megalithic tombs) as reminders of the people who settled here as far back as the 3rd and 4th centuries BC.

The surrounding area is also reach of culture and history. There are castles, medieval villages, historical cities, fantastic architecture, fiestas and local handcrafts.

About one hour from Roses (by bus or car), another attraction is waiting for you.

The ancient walled city of Girona, originally built by Romans as fortress, is a real gem.

Here, you can stroll through one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe or lose yourself in the alluring labyrinth of narrow streets which still reflect Girona's two centuries Moorish occupation.

Roses is particularly well placed to explore the Salvador Dali connection.

You will be amazed by the fascinating surrealist world of Salvador Dali in his birthplace, Figueres.

The Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres is the largest surrealistic exposition in the world.

Not only is the museum an artwork in itself, it's also home to many famous works by famous eccentric Salvador Dali.

Another museum of Salvador is located near Cadaques at Port-LLigat. It's a weird and wonderful home created by weird and wonderful artist.

Situated between Figueres & Cadaques, Roses is a convenient base to visit both Museums.

And, of course, the biggest attraction of Roses is its coastline with endless stretches of fine sand.Palm-lined promenade running parallel to the sandy beaches for 4 km is a nice place for afternoon walk or jog.
