The Valencian Government is planning to restore the Vía Augusta Roman road in Guardamar, starting with making some archaeological surveys in the north of the municipality.

Guardamar was very important in the Phoenecian period so when the Romans built this 1,500 kilometre road around the Mediterranean from the Pyrenees to Cádiz it went through the municipality but they are not sure exactly where.

The route is still the Iberian Peninsula’s principal connection with Europe and is used for roads and railways today.

The idea is to restore it through the whole Valencian Community for people to enjoy walking, cycling or horse riding, with hostels, information centres and rest areas.

An exhibition about the Vía Augusta and the Roman settlement in the area is now open at the Guardamar Archaeological Museum until April.
