Illeta dels Banyets de la Reina
La Illeta dels Banyets is one of the most significant archaeological sites of the Spanish Mediterranean. It is a synthesis of all the cultures that have inhabited our lands. The first remains date from the Chalcolithic Copper Age and the Bronze Age in the second millennium B.C. The relics from the Iberian settlements are particularly outstanding and have some singular characteristics; not many houses were discovered, but instead storehouses with pieces of pottery. This fact has led to the conclusion that important commercial activity took place here. Two temples with unique features for the period have also been found. The Roman period objects include fish-farms and thermal hot baths, from which constructions the site gets its name.
