Conimbriga ruins


To see ​Conimbriga ruins

Ten kilometers south of Coimbra, the best roman ruins in Portugal deserve your visit.

The city seems to exist from the 9th century BC, with the Romans arriving 800 years later.

​Only less than one third of the area has been already excavated, but some buildings show good mosaics.

I must confess that I’ve been there 3 times, always surprised by the progress of the excavations and by the improvement in the quality of the exhibition.
