Previous to the trip to this place we were taken on a tour to see the Roman altar remains that can be seen on a building on the corner of Rua Travessa de Almada. In Rua das Pedras Negras – on yr right Roman baths have been discovered and can be seen through the window but these have not prepared for visiting yet. Rua Sao Mamede Museo Teatro Romano. The theatre was built in the first century The “galerias romanas” or underground Roman galleries, said to be a portico crypt from the reign of Augustus (1st century BC to 1st century AD), are located in the Rua da Prata in Lisbon’s downtown area. They are particularly difficult to see, however, because they open for public viewing just once a year, normally in September. This is because they are almost impossible to access, much of the area being flooded, and it takes anything up to a month of work by specialised personnel to prepare this monument for public access. Naturally, during the few hours they are open, enormous queues form and waiting time can be up to 3.5 hours.
To sum up the tour we went to the Millenium building to visit the remains beneath the bank. The guide was really fascinating and it really gave me a much deeper insight into the history of Lisbon.

good for those interested in archaelogy, otherwise just dont waste your time. you will see how romans lived in Lisbon, hear how the river was at that time, see how romans exported fish and other food specialities, nice for those who like history. see the time table as you may find it close. No indication as to the place, see the map, entrance from Rua Augusta or Correeiros.

We stopped into the bank to book the tour of this hidden gem and met a wonderful and knowledgeable woman. Although the English tour was not to be given until 3 hours later, we looked around the antechamber at the interesting ancient pottery used for transport of fish paste, olive oil, and wine. While we looked, the woman (I wish I remembered her name) began to give us a private tutorial on the pottery. She was fascinating. We must have spent 40 minutes speaking with her. We were so excited by her knowledge and passion for the artifacts, we came back for the tour of the actual ruins (located under the building) which include an ancient Roman bath (beautifully tiled) and a burial ground. Unfortanuately, the woman who we had met earlier in the day did not lead our tour and the tour guide was clearly in rush to end her day and she shared none of the passion for the artifacts that the woman we met first had. If we had only gone on the tour, I'd rate this experience a 2 or 3 star (fine for a free tour, really); but, having spent the time earlier in the day getting acquainted with the artifacts in the antechamber under the guidance of the terrific curator, I would give this experience 10 stars if possible. The whole experience is free so you really can't lose. But, if you can, get there early in the day and try to engage the curator. If you love hearing about antiquity and how archarologists use artifacts to illuminate the past, you'll be floored by the information. Absolutely wonderful!!

Right in the center of Lisbon this tour is available to everyone.

Owned by the bank Millennium BCP this small private museum reveals the archaeological treasures to be found under the Pombaline Baixa (downtown), displaying vestiges from different ages, but specially from the Roman times. You can go to the level that Lisbon had before the earthquake of 1755.

You need to book the visit by calling --. The tours are only possible Thursdays (15:00 -17:00) and Saturdays (f15:00 -17:00).
