This place is excellent if you're s fan of Roman history. Most of the villa and its surrounding buildings have their outlines intact. The swimming pools alone are worth the 3 Euro entry fee, which is nothing considering my bus from Albufeira to Vilamora was...More

A little gem on the edge of the marina. If you enjoy your Roman history this is a good place to visit for about 60-75 mins. Consists of outdoor ruins and indoor museum.

We visited at the end of May. For only three euros each it was great value for money. We found it very interesting and would recommend

Definitely worth a visit, little gem in the middle of a holiday resort. Surprised at how extensive the area excavated is.
