Family of four adults and four teenagers visited. Quite interesting. Doesn't take very long to see everything. However the lady on the reception desk did give us a reduction on the entry fee as we did arrive quite late in the day.

This small roman site is very easily accessible from the harbour. It has a small exibition of finds from the site and is well worth a walk around.

It is well preserved and shows the ruins of a largish Roman villa in the heart of the ultra modern villamoura resort. Well worth a visit.

Spent a pleasant morning here wandering around the remarkable ruins. Well preserved mosaics and structures, easy to make out the old Roman villa. A fun and interesting thing to do whilst staying in the vicinity.

We spent an interesting hour wandering round these ruins. It only costs 3€ and there is a small air conditioned museum (complete with toilets) of unearthed relics to see first. We then went outside to see the remains of the Villa, public spa, burial area...More

There is not much to do in Vilamoura except for enjoying the sunshine and relaxing in the many excellent bars and restaurants. However, this gem of a roman ruin is fascinating and provides a real insight into the civilisation of the Algarve over 2000 years...More

Closed all day on Monday as I recall (because we dropped by) otherwise typical opening hours 9-5. We were there in June, so likely to be the most extensive hours they have though. Well worth a visit, but my family would say... More
