Roman Life in Vilamoura 200 AD
Vilamoura, the coastal community in the central Algarve, is acclaimed for its numerous golf courses, long stretches of pristine beaches and award winning marina. It is the epitome of enjoyable and relaxed lifestyle. Here, the sun shines almost daily, just as it has for thousands of years. Yet, life today looks quite different than it did on this same spot a thousand years ago. How do we know? Interestingly, we can observe life between the 1st and 5th century AD Vilamoura by visiting the Cerro da Vila Roman Ruins & Museum, just a few short steps from the marina. The archeological site and exhibition offer insight into what life was like on the coast two millenniums ago.
