  • We visited the ruins and the Museum in a very hot day. Definitely a place to know for those who enjoy history. In my opinion lacking in identification of each one of the ruins a demonstrative image to allow, especially those who are not so within this area, showing the shape of the buildings. Note that very still be hidden there and it is a shame that in this country there are no football resources to bring to light the rich history of our past. Metal structures built to cover part of the ruins could certainly have a better framework and do not stand out as much. Despite these details, a site that I recommend.

  • The origin of Coimbra, conimbriga. Must-see for anyone visiting the city of Coimbra or is in the region. Just 20 minutes ' drive from the Centre of this impressive patrimório Coímbra Roman history and a key milestone to discover the history of the region, in Portugal and in Europe.

  • A landmark of romanization in the Iberian Peninsula. Must-visit for anyone with children who are studying the Romans in the fifth grade. Very useful for seeing "in loco" what they learned in school. This space has a huge potential. Could be one of the most important places in Europe from the Roman period if it were better exploited. Some investment in the promotion of this site, at international level, would eventually bring results. The area of Coimbra has a number of attractions that should be "sold" on the package. Another thing: it has free entries to the 1st Sunday of every month

  • Museum about the romanization of the Condeixa and surroundings. Spectacular ruins but that should be the target of increased investment. Worth the visit.
