Miróbriga is an ancient Roman town located near the village and civil parish of Santiago do Cacém, in the municipality of the same name in the south-west of Portugal. Archeology revealed a that the town occupied the site of an ancient Iron Age settlement that existed since the 9th century B.C.With the Roman colonization a commercial area developed around the Forum. The baths, among the best preserved in Portugal, consist of two adjoining buildings, possibly for male and female use respectively. The residential areas are still little known. Relatively close to the baths, there is a bridge with a single, semicircular arch. The hippodrome, the only one whose entire ground plan is completely known in Portugal, is located further from the centre.HistoryExcavations and investigations, suggest that the earliest settlement began to take shape in the 9th century B.C., and that the defensive walls began appearing between the 4th-3rd century B.C. This settlement occupied an area of 11,800 m², with the population inhabiting the area along the embankment and north-east corner of Castelo Velho, of which only a wall and temple remains .By about the second half of the 1st century Roman occupation began, expanding the site and occupying an area of 28,000 m². At this time the thermal baths and paved road along the southeast were constructed, reflecting the Flavian economic prosperity. Around the first half of the 2nd century, the construction of the Oriental baths and hippodrome was begun, followed by a second phase of construction in the second half of the 2nd century and 3rd century.

  • Mirobrica Celticorum is a Roman town is worth a brief stop. its remains are located on high ground near Santiago do Cacém. For those who have seen other excavations is not great but is a major settlement in the area with a temple, the Forum, the thermal baths and the only racetrack found in Portugal. There is also a reception center.
