The Iberian settlement of Turó Rodó is located on a peninsular promontory 40 meters high, located northeast of the town of Lloret de Mar. The hill is located on a small peninsula that goes into the sea to the tip of Calafats, to the south, and is linked to the mainland by a small ism about 100 meters wide on the Tramuntana side. The eastern and midday bands rise directly above the sea, with Sa Caleta beach to the west. This location makes it a strategic place, both for the wide visual panorama that allows you to see, and for being a place of easy defense. In addition, the beach of Sa Caleta served as a refuge for boats, a very important aspect for these communities that practiced fishing.
