8 miles far from Conímbriga, in Rabaçal, the pavements of the old Palace show the ancient influences of the Middle East!

Many tesseras forming drawings in the mosaics: trees and flowers very similar to the other Roman pavements in the Villae of North Africa! Quite close, in Santiago da Guarda, we find the Tower of the Counts of Castelo Melhor, situated in the way that connected Tomar to Santiago da Compostela, crossing Rabaçal and Conímbriga, following then to Coimbra.
