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.

Spent a relaxed hour walking round these villa ruins and then the small museum. Not really for younger children but a good and interesting visit for those interested in Roman history.

Found out this place on trip advisor!! Would have missed it as not advertised here in Vilamoura at all. Small Place, but fascinating and well worth the €3 entrance fee. Beautiful roman remains of a villa and although museum is small I cannot recommend highly...More
