Probably the most extensive and well laid out Roman town outside of Italy, Conimbriga is well worth the visit two miles south of Coimbra. Not only several baths that give you a good idea of the lay out of 2nd C roman baths, but also...More

We spent almost 2 hours walking around the grounds, looking at the things mentioned in the signs (in Portuguese and English). The tile mosaics on the floors were great, many still have the colors of 2000 years ago. Most of the ruins are more like...More
