What To Expect
Museu Monografico de Conimbriga
Inhabited since pre-Historic times, Conímbriga was occupied by Roman troops in 139 BC and it became the prosperous capital city of the Lusitania province. In the next century, during the reign of Emperor Augustus, the urban part of the city grew. It was during this period that some of the most important buildings for everyday life in a Roman city were build such as the forum, the amphitheatre and the thermal baths. Later, a three-nave basilica was built in the town’s centre.
You can also visit the Museum where several rooms will take you to everyday life at this Roman city through objects discovered after many years of excavations, its religious life, architecture manor houses and their decoration and even life at the forum.

Great hike and ruins visit
Great experience! A beautiful hike that was definitely good exercise but not overly difficult for those not accustomed to frequent hiking, and a great final stop in the Roman ruins. Would definitely recommend
Alfredo was a great host! We had a great day on our tour and he had a lot of knowledge about the places we visited! Would definitely recommend
We had an amazing time hiking thanks to Alfredo. Nature was amazing and we had so much fun. We would really recommend this hike to others. We're unexperienced, but even though the hike was not simple, it went great. Amazing!
Alfredo was the most amazing guide, sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of the ruins and nature of the landscape. He was friendly, interesting, and gracious and let us set the pace on the hike and indeed the whole tour. Conímbriga is a “must see” — especially the mosaics and fountains. The hike was a lot of fun too (wear the right shoes!) We will definitely come back and maybe try to catch a performance one evening at the ruins.
