The Hosting City, Roses

Welcome Roses

Welcome to Roses, a bay with 3,000 years of history. Roses is a town with Mediterranean essence and a strong tourist and marine tradition. It is located in a unique natural environment: at the north of the Costa Brava, at less than 30 km from the French border, at 65 km from Girona city and 160 km from Barcelona.

 

Its origins go back to the 8th century BC, with the arrival of Rodis people and the founding of the Greek city of Rodes. These historical facts turned into the identity signs of a modern, culturally active and generous population, the result of the coexistence with other peoples and civilizations, of which we feel very proud and satisfied.

 

We invite you to sail through a city full of attractions and new sensations to discover - just as the first settlers did 3,000 years ago-, where enjoying nature, culture, the dolce far niente and traditions is a privilege reach of all.

 

If Roses' sunsets, the affable and hospitable mood of the people, the historical legacy, the tourist, sports and gastronomic offer, the professionalism in the services offered and by the infinite possibilities of fun and leisure seduces you, we will have reached our goal. Be welcome!

 

The Roses Bay is included in the Club of the Most Beautifull Bays in the World since the 11th of November in 2011, recognized by the UNESCO and you can find part of its merits to be listed in this Club at (https://www.badiaderoses.com/?lang=en).

HISTORY: The marvellous natural, geographic and climate conditions of Roses and its Bay have favoured human settlements from prehistoric times to the present day, from Greek colonialisation, Roman and Mediaeval settlements, that have left behind extraordinary archaeological riches.

 

CUISINE:  Roses cuisine, moving between tradition and creativity, is emminently based on fresh fish. From traditional dishes such as Catalan Fish Stew [Suquet de Peix] to Ferran Adrià’s most ingenious invention. As a natural harbour, Roses has an important fishing fleet that provides the town with fresh fish and seafood daily. Both the departure and arrival of the boats is a true spectacle.
