A small site. Good descriptions on signs and obviously more excavations in progress. Worth a visit for 3 euros per person, but don't expect too much

Entrance fee only €1.50 pp ..well worth the visit! Very interesting Roman site with leaflet and information on notice boards. Some lovely mosaics, but I worried that they need more protection. (We arrived after heavy rain!)

We paid a visit here whilst ambling around Viamora. It's well worth the 3 euros and an hour of your time to see how things were in Roman times and the artefacts that have been assembled. Recommended

This site is not the most exciting but it shows both the luxury of the ruling classes and the care given to the workers. the public / workers baths are extensive and suggest that other levels of care were in place. the impressions of the vila and the overall site can make you feel yourself there. After our visit my... More

We really enjoyed our time looking round the roman ruins on the last day of our holiday last week. It is very interesting and you can walk round at your own pace. I'd encourage anyone with an interest in history to take a look around.

Take some time out of your schedule to step back in time. Lovely on a sunny morning. Cost is €3 per person but well worth it. A tour of the grounds then a small museum to visit too. I loved imagining how life must have been under the Romans and you can really picture how the house and pools must... More

Spent an hour or so marvelling at the way people used to live. Some beautiful examples of mosaic tiling have been preserved.

This is a really good site which sets out wel to describe the Roman remains and how the site would hve been. Previously only peered thru' the railings, but encouraged in this time by a young enthusiastic Romano-phile who is a teacher and loves Latin and Roman relics. Ao glad we went in.
