Located in the centre of Portugal, the region of Terras de Sicó covers six municipalities around the Serra de Sicó massif which divides the river basins of Nabão and Soure. The mountain is a living witness of the region’s ancient history, offering several important archaeological remains among its extensive oak forests.
Listed as a World Heritage Site by Unesco since 1998, the Foz Côa Valley is considered “the most important open air Palaeolithic rock art site”.
Machado de Castro National Museum is a true icon of Coimbra.
Located 12 kilometres away from Conímbriga, this great Roman housing complex, established above the Rabaçal valley was discovered after several long archaeological campaigns in 1984.
The streets and the houses with their perfumed and cool patios, the floors paved with polychromatic mosaics and the perfume coming from the baths make us imagine a pompous, almost “imperial”, Conímbriga.
The goal of the entire complex of the Côa Valley Archaeological Park is to provide its visitors with a singular version of a unique and striking space in the History of human artistic and social evolution.
