Calpe ar­chae­ol­ogy field trip suc­cess­ful

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS - By Jo Pugh

TWENTY-two young peo­ple from across Europe have helped to clear the his­tor­i­cal 'Baños de la Reina' (Queen's Baths) coast­line site in Calpe from over­grown weeds.

The young­sters, aged be­tween 18 and 24, came from Ser­bia, Ar­me­nia, France, Italy and other parts of Spain to visit the site. Their ob­ject was to clear the ru­ins of weeds to ex­pose the ru­ins once more. They had been work­ing on the area since midJuly, and have now com­pleted their task.

Los Baños de la Reina is Ro­man ruin dat­ing back to be­tween the first and fourth cen­turies. It is com­posed of sev­eral dwellings and, of course, the ‘Queen’s Baths’, which juts out into the sea close to Calpe Rock.
