The Roman villa of Torre Llauder can be visited at Clos Archaeology in the Pla d’en Boet neighbourhood, where the residential zone (pars urbana) dating from the 3rd century AD still remains. As was common in wealthy Roman homes, this sector was arranged around an inner porticoed courtyard which led to the owner’s noble quarters, which were in turn decorated with mosaics and murals. The bath zone and two peristyles or courtyard also still remain.

The area where the productive activities of the villa took place (pars rustica) was made up of crop fields, warehouses, craftsmen’s quarters and slave quarters.
