The archaeological site of the Roman City of Ocuri traces its origins to the Iberian Culture (5th century BC), when a settlement was established in this area. It was with the arrival of the Romans to the Iberian Peninsula that the Roman municipality of Ocuri was established in the area, with a monumental character, which can be seen today in the archaeological remains preserved at the site.

Since 2015, the Ayuntamiento de Ubrique, through the Culture and Tourism Delegations, together with the Archaeology Department, have been responsible for the management, custody, conservation, and tourist and cultural access to the Archaeological Site of Ocuri.

The Roman City of Ocuri aims to be a reference point for tourism linked to Historical and Industrial Heritage, and specifically, for Archaeological Sites. To this end, it will have a Tourism Quality Management System and undertakes to:

  • Continuous improvement of the quality of guided tours with compatible objectives in tourism and conservation of historical and industrial heritage.
  • Comply with the requirements of the UNE 13810 Standard, which makes it compulsory to rigorously follow tourism quality management.
  • Meet customer expectations by providing them with a feedback questionnaire after the guided tour.
