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.
