    Was an important centre during the Roman Empire and continued inhabited until at least the ninth century. Is one of the greatest archaeological sites of which there are traces in Portugal. Is situated in Condeixa Old a few kilometers from Coimbra. A very interesting site. It's worth checking out.

    If you are condexia and you like the story, don't miss the archaeological site of Conímbriga and its Museum. You'll see extremely well-preserved Roman frescoes and especially linger in the villa to the fountains for you imbibe of l anbiance of places.

  • Complete Roman town....over time. Many intact beautiful mosaic floors and internal water feature gardens. Some reconstructed areas. Bath complexes. The forum. And the wall they built through the houses/town as it shrank over time and the empire collapse occurred. Fascinating.
  • Great place to visit roman ruins and get a sense of the extent and lay out of roman town. Great mosaics! Museum ok, but the real thrill is the house of fountains.
  • It is lovely here but it was disappointing to see some of the restoration works are done in a too modern way and didn't seem to sit well in the surroundings and the actual ruin.
  • Some nice ruins and quick to see
  • Something unique in Portugal, with directions, all well explained and situated so we can understand what we're looking at. Magnificent, so if you activate the fonts will be worth it.
