São Brás de Alportel

The “Calçadinha” cobbled road of S. Brás de Alportel is 1,480 metres long and was part of the Roman road network. The archaeological remains consist of two stretches designated “A” and “B”, and they are separated by a few metres that were surfaced at a different time.

The stretches of road differ one from the other. Stretch “A” is about 100 metres long and the paving was renewed in the 19th century, probably on the initiative of Bishop D. Francisco Gomes do Avelar. Stretch “B”, which is 550 metres long and 2.50 metres wide, is more true to its Roman origins.

The refurbished building that was formerly the Municipal Abattoir currently houses the Calçadinha of São Brás de Alportel Explanatory and Welcome Centre, where you can find all the information available about this ancient road of Roman origin.
