Roses is a city and municipality in the county of Alt Empordà. It is located in the northern part of the Gulf of Roses, just where the north wind blows persistently and enthusiastically going through that area.

Roses is considered a major tourist center for its fantastic situation, taking into account the large number of developments and new populated areas in surprising places. Moreover, it is halfway to visitors entering the peninsula to the north and half way to all those who want to escape the heat and movement of large cities, but without leaving the country. They seek the tranquility of the sea and the preciousness of the environment around them, the countless coves, cliffs and all that is part of the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, taking very near the marshes of the Empordà.

The city has a great history in its wake, from its formation as a Greek colony to the present day. Displays that are the elements of interest are: the megalithic of Roses where we find the dolmen de la Creu d'en Cobertella, dated 3000 BC, the Castrum visigótico of Puig Rom, located on a hilltop fortification where we find a wall and the remains of the walls inside the house; Bufalaranya Castle where we also find remains of the building, the Monastery of Santa Maria de Roses located within the city of Rhodes and within the Citadel of Roses that is a citadel itself, but in reality, the wall is old core genuine town of Roses. In addition, we also found inside the Greek and Roman city that was the beginning of Roses. In part that closes the bay of Roses found Trinitat Castle, located at the tip of the Poncella and has a plant irregular five-pointed star.

All a population with a long history and has forged its path.
