It was here, to the southeast of the steep Cape Creus peninsula, that sailors from Rhodes founded the colony of the same name in the 8C BC. A magnificent natural port, Roses is home to the largest fishing fleet in northern Catalonia. In addition to its many vestiges of the past, the town is also an important tourist resort with a wide choice of hotels, restaurants and leisure facilities.
