Baelo Claudia was an ancient fishing town during the reign of Emperor Claudius. It sat on the strait of Gibraltar in Spain, which gave it a trading advantage. All that remains is an archaeological site, and it is open to the public.
The town was known for producing a special fermented fish sauce that was used by many to prepare foods. It was also known for how it used dry salt to preserve foods such as fish.
Archaeologists have determined via its ruins that it had structures such as a theater, aqueducts, thriving markets, temples and other Roman necessities. Many of the finds prove that Baelo was one of the most industrialized cities in the region.
