Roman Ruins & Museum of Conímbriga


The location site of Conímbriga was populated by the Romans around 139 B. C. , in a region that contained previous signs of prehistoric occupation, establishing the prosperous capital of Lusitânia. During the rule of Emperor Augusto, Conímbriga grew into a more urban scale including an amphitheater, thermal baths and Roman Forum. Though the most impressive remains of that period are the domus - manor houses - and the insulae. These structures are so well preserved that you will feel like traveling back in time!

We will visit the locations of the old town of Conímbriga while learning about the daily livings during that period and understand the strategic location on the territory that later would become Portugal. At the monographic museum we will admire the objects that were used by the people on their daily tasks!

Itinerary

These are some of the things we'll see during this tour: Roman Road - The first mosaics found in the 19th Century - Shops - Casa da Cruz Suástica - Casa dos Esqueletos - Imperial Wall - Baths of the Wall - Great Southern Baths - Insulas - Roman Forum - Pre-Roman Findings - Casa de Cantaber and Casa dos Repuxos - Baths of the Aqueduct and in the end we will visit the Museum of Conímbriga where you will see the main objects found during decades of archaeological excavations on site.
Weather might affect our walk in the ruins, but I'm very experienced on controlling those matters so everything will be ok!
