  • Only 17% of huge site has been excavated. Defensive walls 12 feet thick, portions of the Roman road originally connecting Lisbon to Braga, partially reconstructed Forum and more. Wonderfully preserved...  more »
  • We made the trip here on the way to Coimbra because we had never seen Roman ruins before. The striking thing about them is in the covered area, the so-called House of the Fountains - beautiful mosaics...  more »
  • Wow. An absolute must see. We were traveling from Coimbra to Porta and stopped by here for a couple of hours. Well worth it. Extensive ruins, amazing mosaic floors. Definitely worth a detour  more »

  • 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.
