The museum is very interesting with a beautiful collection of Roman jewels and coins. Further a interesting film in English. The museum is wheelchair friendly. The outside sites are not. Hard to imagine such a large city existed there at the time

These are a few minuets drive form Marvao, but well worth the drive, good trip out for the morning, and a nice walk around the ruins

Take your time to explore the grounds and immerse yourself in the ancient ruins. Once you pay the entry fee you receive a map that is easy to follow.

This site is in a rural part of Portugal with beautiful vistas of mountains and fields. A very serene place to visit after seeing a lot of cities in Portugal. It is an early site but the amount that they have uncovered and the size...More

Interesting if you spend time reading everything. Small site and museum. Although the artefacts are well preserved the range of artefacts is limited. Need boots if walking around in wet conditions as outside paths on the site and between items can get very muddy.

We went there. You have to pay to get in, not much though. But there is really not much to see. There are many other Roman sites that are much more interesting. Not worth the effort.
