Caviclum: Roman heritage in Torrox

The archeological excavation on the lighthouse of Torrox Costa shows the relicts of a former Roman colony from the first century after Christ. This colony was called Caviclum and offered a pottery workshop, a factory in which they prepared fish, thermal baths and a residence for rich people amongst others. The excavation was called heritage site in 2007. Next to the excavation there is an interpretation center which cleared the roman history within this colony and now offers information as well as fotos and videos about the excavation.
