Coimbra, Portugal

Conimbriga Ruins and Museum

One of the largest Roman settlements in Portugal. 

With an estimated population of around 10,600, Conimbriga was not the largest Roman city in Portugal, but it was close, and it is the best preserved, remaining mostly unearthed until the 2000s. The city was inhabited between 9th century BC and 7th or 8th century AD.
