More proof that those Romans got everywhere, back 2000 years ago. This interesting set of ruins is right on the main road at Vilamoura Marina and is certainly worth a quick look, especially since the entrance fee is only 3 Euros. Not only did this...More

Arrived out this place one morning strolled around at me leisure and enjoyed the exhibit and the Roman ruin. Great for 3.00 euro.

Visited one afternoon on my own, as the family weren't interested. What a fantastic site, much better than sites in the UK, well worth a visit.

We only paid 1.5 euro to enter, and it was a gorgeous sunny say when we went. The inside exhibit was small (one room) but outside the ruins were vast. We also were given maps so we could walk around the ruins easily. Well worth...More

It is very quite and well perserved site. The price is very afforfable. It offers very interesting and fascinating piece of history. Receptionist was lovely and one more thing you don't need much time as it is not very big at all.

Right in the town of Vilamoura yet away from the crowds this Roman villa complex is interesting to stroll around. You get a picture of life in those times in the area. It costs a few euros to enter.

Not impressively - some remains of once spectacular buildings. But you should be very interested in this related to area in Portugal and Algarve the feel this was/is a must-do. More history behind required - text, illustrations and making-the-history-alive setup needed.

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
