Calpe archaeology field trip successful
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.
