  • The Archaeological Museum of Conimbriga exhibits numerous remains found in the site. It is interesting but not particularly striking about other similar ones. If you visit the ruins, don't forget to see it.

  • Well preserved, fairly large provincial Roman archaeological site. A must see when in Portugal. Drive or take a bus from Coimbra main bus station.  more »

  • We didn't have time to go to the actual museum on site but we saw a small part of the ruins, which were spectacular. To know that you are looking at and being a part of something that was built in the first century is an incredible feeling. The floor mosaics are beautiful and the area itself is quite accessible. We saw a small portion of the ruins as we didn't know it was such a large area. So when visiting go with a lot of time to spare and comfortable walking.
  • Stunning at the way this place has been preserved. It was a misty day when I went, so I was one of a handful of people at the site, so I got to explore and read at my own pace. It's like stepping back in time to see how things were before.
