Museu Monografico de Conimbriga Reviews
The ruin is vast so bring your walking shoes and sunhat, if it is summer. Compared to other ruins, Mérida for example, there isn't a lot left standing. Copies of the original floor stone mosaics... more »
We loved this site very much. We got an excellent idea how the Romans used to live there especially the fountain area is well preserved more »
This is worth going to, also good restaurant, not expensive.
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.
