Ruínas romanas do Cerro da Vila (Cerro da Vila Roman Ruins)


In Vilamoura, there was an important Roman villa which was built between 27 B.C. and 14 A.D., and was occupied by Romans, Visigoths and Arabs.

Here, a number of different economic activities were carried out, the most important being the manufacture of garum, a fish preserve which was exported across the entire Roman Empire.

There is also a small museum at the archaeological site which exhibits ceramic objects and mosaics.
