Starting this week, the Tossal de La Cala site will be open to the public seven days a week and will maintain guided tours, which can be made with prior reservation. This is how the Councilor for Historical Heritage, Ana Pellicer, has pointed out that “we have extended the opening of the 'castellum' to Saturday afternoon and Sunday to facilitate visits during weekends to all those interested in learn more about this recently musealised archaeological site, which constitutes a national benchmark for Roman military architecture from the late imperial era ”.

With this extended hours, the 'castellum' can be visited from Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays, from 9am to 6pm. With regard to the guided visits, the frequency and schedules are maintained: Monday to Friday from 4pm to 6pm; and on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm. Guided tours work by reservation through the email patrimonihistoric@benidorm.org .

Pellicer has indicated that “with the daily opening and with the guided visits we intend to continue bringing our historical heritage and, with it, our roots as a people to the population as a whole, both residents and visitors; an objective that was in the essence of the project of excavation, recovery and musealisation of the Tossal ”.

She also has highlighted that “the numbers of people who have visited the site since its opening in early August show that the historical heritage arouses the interest of the public, interested in knowing what the 'castellum' was like and how it worked; information that appears collected in the panels installed in the enclosure as well as in the audio guide hosted on the municipal website and which can be easily accessed with a 'smartphone' through a QR code ”.

In total, between 5th August 5 - 31st October, 4,259 people have passed through the Tossal.
