One of only a couple of Roman mosaics that survive in Lisbon
The Núcleo Arqueológico da Rua dos Correeiros (Archaeological Site of Rua dos Correeiros) displays a collection of findings from archaeological excavations carried out between 1991 and 1995, and occupies an entire block downtown, below the headquarters of the Millennium BCP Bank.
Pieces found in excavations in the 1990s
It reveals traces of different periods, such as a ceramic oven from the Iron Age, tanks of a Roman fish factory, and the 18th-century city reconstructed by the Marquis of Pombal.
Traces of the last 2500 years in Lisbon
The journey through 2500 years of Lisbon history is experienced on guided tours, which last between 45 minutes and one hour. They point out the amphorae, Roman coins, and the foundations of buildings built over the centuries, among other finds. The highlights, however, are the well-preserved Roman mosaics.
