Really enjoyed seeing these Roman ruins. Took whole family, kids aged 6 & 9 for only 6 euros. The site is clearly laid out and well presented with descriptions and pictures to show what it would have been like. Whole family loved it!

We have two children aged 8 and 6 who both got free entry, we paid six euros and it kept their attention just long enough without it being too much in the heat. Would recommend for a walk round.

Really enjoyed this visit. An incredible place, giving great insight as to how the Roman Empire extended its boundaries well beyond Rome. We should take great heed, bythis this example, of how one culture can easily infiltrate its belief systems etc, into neighbouring countries, and impose its traditions, religion etc , even in the absence of IT systems. imagine what...

Great to see some more Roman ruins. I've seen many over the years and we are lucky enough to live near one in fishbourne near Chichester UK. Well it's worth the couple of euro's it only costs, tucked away behind the buzzing Vilamoura Harbour and in the near of the mini golf course. It's well preserved artefacts and findings are... More

Myself and my partner went early morning in the week so we were the only visitors at the time, you can walk around at your leisure and it's very cheap (3 Euros each) The actual site was quite well preserved but only includes very low foundations. However the artist impressions and the explanations (in English also) were perfect to imagine... More

This is an amazing site of a Roman villa. Archaeologists have done a superb job of uncovering the foundations depicting the layout and infrastructure so that we can see exactly how the villa was constructed and how people lived then. All parts of the site are well signposted and the museum is very interesting too. Well worth the entry fee... More

If we hadn't started a passing conversation we'd never have known about the Roman Villa, tucked away at the back of the marina. It's beautiful backdrop and stunning location made it an interesting place to visit. There is a small entrance fee, but very worth it if historic sites are your thing.

Great little find on our holidays. Granted, it's a small site but full of history and wonder. Beautiful mosaics and artefacts to be seen. €3 entry fee. Great price. Lovely receptionist too.
