The ruins are open all year long from 10am. You can see the Forum, ruins of 3 temples, the theatre, the fish factory and some houses ruins. There is a little museum too.
Entrance is free for European citizens. For the rest, 1,5 euros.
There is a little (tiny) museum inside the archeological place where you can see some findings, aerial views and explanations about life in Bolonia in those days.
There is a new museum being built now (2004), much bigger, but horrible as it really ruins the wonderful landscape of ruins, dunes, sea and mountains :-((
You can visit a medium size theatre here. The presence of a theatre indicates a certain status of Baelo Claudia, as only important villages had one. You can't climb up the stairs, but you can have a good view of it from the scenery.
You can still see here clearly the paved streets with big flat stones, very well preserved in spite of the years.
There was a long roman "highway between Rome and Cadiz all along the coast in those days...

The prosperous roman city "Baelo Claudia" was discovered here in 1917. You can walk through the ruins and read the story of this town. The roman empire decline, the frequent invasion from south and a flooding caused its end in the 3rd century.

Although Bolonia is evenly famous for the roman ruins, I found its wild dune-beach really wonderful. On the far end of the beach the dunes climb on the hill giving a great view to you walking along the sea. Ok it could be quite windy but you're in costa de la luz! ;)
A ride to the windmills - like mountain goats the horses climb up stony pathes to the hills top , where you are compensated for the effort by a breathtaking view over Tarifa and as far as Marroco. Enjoy nature over an original spanish picnic. About 4 hours.
Ride to Bolonia - along a sandy beach or through the pine forest to the bay of Bolonia, a small fishing village and the famous archaelogical site of an ancient roman village. Here your horse can take a break and you can enjoy the excellent food offered in many of the small and typical seafood-restaurants.
