Walking around the Gulf of Roses.

The route begins next to the mouth of the Rio Grande on the Santa Margarida beach, and will cross the Bay of Roses heading north. The route runs along the whole seafront promenade of Roses and its beaches.

On Rastell Beach we will cross the Riera de la Trencada before coming very close to the Citadel of Roses where a visit to the Citadel and its Museum is a must.

A little further on and next to La Punta beach, we can see the Marina and the Fishermen's Wharf in Roses (ask for guided tours at the tourist office), where we can watch the daily activity.

After the port, Trinitat Castle comes into view, which can also be visited on guided tours, before we arrive at Roses Lighthouse, the final point on this fascinating walk.
