Núcleo Museológico das Ruínas de Milreu

The plan of the ruins reveals the charcateristic shape of a roman villa, with a indoors atrium surrounded by a gallery of columns. In the southern part of the ruins, one can see the "nympheum", a sanctuary built in the 4th century, devoted to the water divinities and later transformed into a paleo-christian temple.
