The archaeological site of Baelo Claudia is situated in a privileged location on the beach in Bolonia and within the Natural Park of the Strait.
The Roman town has its origins in the late 2nd century B.C. and was built on a former Phoenician-Punic settlement known as Bailo Baelokun. It was an important commercial port due to its proximity to Africa.
