Major archeological dig on the side of Alfama hill. Shows that the Romans were truly here and built a major city. Worth a look while you are on your way to the castle.

It's not that unusual for construction to be taking place in Europe only to find Roman ruins as it begins. I came upon them as I was walking up to the Cathedral. Worth a visit!

Hard not to give a good review since it has a free entrance fee. It is fascinating to see what they have uncovered so far. While this site is quite small it is presented well.

Very nice but small museum! The archaeological evidence is wonderfully preserved and displayed to the public. Free entry with Lisboa card.

The entrance to this museum is free which makes it perfect for a little stop by. There's not too much to see but anyway it's interesting and fascinating. There also is a small gift shop.

The best aspect of this museum is that it provides context to the Roman Theater ruins across the street from it. It is a spacious museum which does not contain that many items. There is a bit of information on some aspects (mostly to do...More
