  • This is a beautiful spot and it is a work in progress. They do excavations each summer and expand their knowledge of the area. The glass collection itself is worth the price of the entrance fee...  more »

  • We were not able to get here as our pre-programmed GPS took us into a small town and ultimately into someone's front yard where I had to back down a steep road around two 90-degree corners. Please...  more »

  • If in the area it is definitely worth a one hour or less visit to learn about how this part of Portugal was important during the Roman empire, especially for the production of olive oil, wine and cereals that were exported throughout the empire. Foodies can learn one things or two from how the Mediterranean diet was widespread in Europe since ancient times. The archeological site seems to be ready to be further excavated and the little museum gives good information about this Roman city.
  • Overall an interesting visit. However the outside of full of tall grass and you need to cross the main road to visit the entirety of the site.
  • Incredible place to visit, so much to diga sim discover still. The staff was very friendly and passionate about their work, a real pleasure.
  • Icredible how after so many years, that stuff is still there!
  • I visited Cidade Romana de Ammaia in November, 2017 while on my bicycle tour of Portugal. It is an incredible place, albeit only 1-2% of the excavation has been completed. The small museum in the building as you enter is excellent, many items on display, funerary grave markers, coins, weapons, statues, glass and pottery. I have loved seeing all the Roman ruins on my bicycle tour; I love the ancient history.
