The Roman Presence in Portugal
The Romans settled in the territory corresponding to Portugal today, from the second century BC, with the Romanization of Hispania and remained here until the end of the Empire, with the arrival of barbarians in the fifth century AD.
In 27 BC, the territory of Lusitania gained the status of Roman province. During their stay the Romans founded cities, built temples, spas, farm manor villas, roads, aqueducts, fish sauce factories and gold mines etc ..
Traveling around Portugal we can visit some remains of the Roman presence, starting right from the city of Lisbon - Olisipo
