Can Blai (castellum romà)

The remains of a fortified construction from the late Roman era. The estimated date for the site is between the end of the 3rd century and the start of the 4th century AD. It is special due to its square shape with a tower at each corner. It can be compared to other similar constructions located in bordering areas of the empire, such as Romania, Bulgaria, Syria, Palestine and Tunisia. The results of excavations in 1979 and 1980 suggest that it was unfinished and possibly privately owned, built to protect the surrounding population. It was declared a site of cultural interest in the archaeological site category in 1994.
