Egitânia – the old city

Programas turísticos pelas Aldeias Históricas de Portugal

Thanks to its fine collection of ruins, it has some of the country’s most important archaeological sites. It stands in a place where a Roman city once lay, the capital of Civitas Igaeditanorum (1st century BC) and later the episcopal seat during occupation by the Suebi and Visigoths. This village still has traces of different ages that attest to permanent occupation by various civilisations.
