The remains of a villa or agricultural manor house, workers houses and other associated buildings from the time of the Roman Empire have been found in the underground of the centre of the current city. This villa was rebuilt as a fortified medieval mansion during the High Middle Ages.The history of Fundão is intimately related to that of its originally Jewish, then New Christian or Marrano, population.
