The Junta de Andalucía regional government is to spend more than 310,000 euros on the Finca El Secretario Roman site in Fuengirola.
The spending was announced last week by the authority's tourism delegate for Malaga, Nuria Rodríguez, who was in Fuengirola for a meeting with the mayor, Ana Mula, to discuss the aid to be given to the town for tourism purposes this year.
The Finca El Secretario is an important Roman villa complex with urban and industrial buildings as well as thermal baths in an excellent state of preservation.
The remains of the baths are in such good condition that the site is considered to be the most complete of those found in the province to date.
This money will allow the town hall to complete a project to preserve and cover part of the site which will make it more accessible to visitors.
