Had seen a previous post saying it closed for lunch, arrived about half 1 and waited until it opened and it was certainly worth it. It's great to see roman remains and discover what was there all those years ago. There's some great examples of roman tiled floors and you're free to roam around the ruins at your own speed....

Very Interesting, worth visiting if you are staying in the area. Information is in English, and you are given surprisingly free roam of the site.

An isolated bit of history in Vilamoura - near the harbour and cheap entrance charge (about 3euro i think). good visitor centre - worth an hour or so - Beware it closes at lunchtime!

Not far at all from all the bars and restaurants is the awesome roman ruins. 3 euros per person kids free and very interesting. We spent probably a total of 30 minute but could have spent more time for sure. Interesting walk thru ruins have interesting sign posting in both English and Portuguese. Very interesting cultural stop during a beach... More

3 Euros entrance charge leaflet to follow around site with plaques with information at key points but some were missing also route has been changed from leaflet looks like due to erosion of land so for safety cannot follow the planned route but easy to work out and get back on track. Small museum display of artifacts found.

We were told about this by a relation and I'm really glad they did. This is rare in that you can touch and walk on just about everything. Apart from the villa (with raised ruined walls) which are brilliantly brought to life with picture renditions and descriptions there are some great ruins of the public baths. Take your time and...
