The actual museum is quite small and low-key but the outside views of the villa ruins are well worth the visit and only a few euros entry. (Just find a way up a few steps from the marina.) As far as I can see, it's...More

A bit disappointed with this visit but for €3 entry worth a look I suppose. Easy to get to five minute walk from marina. You won’t be there long. Half hour tops. I would not go again though

We took a wonder round this historical site during our recent visit to Vilamoura, and found it very interesting. It was very reasonably priced a 3 Euros per person.
