Easy to spend a couple of hours wandering around this fascinating look at Vilamoura's history. There is a surprising amount to see and you get the feeling that there is more to be unearthed.

Family of four adults and four teenagers visited. Quite interesting. Doesn't take very long to see everything. However the lady on the reception desk did give us a reduction on the entry fee as we did arrive quite late in the day.

This small roman site is very easily accessible from the harbour. It has a small exibition of finds from the site and is well worth a walk around.

this place is great, you can walk among the ruins and then go inside to the museum, to think villamoura was settled thousands of years ago ,if you like history then don't walk past this wonderful villa! cost us 3 euros to get in.

It is well preserved and shows the ruins of a largish Roman villa in the heart of the ultra modern villamoura resort. Well worth a visit.

Spent a pleasant morning here wandering around the remarkable ruins. Well preserved mosaics and structures, easy to make out the old Roman villa. A fun and interesting thing to do whilst staying in the vicinity.

Closed all day on Monday as I recall (because we dropped by) otherwise typical opening hours 9-5. We were there in June, so likely to be the most extensive hours they have though. Well worth a visit, but my family would say... More
