The Romans settled in the Vilamoura area from the 2nd century BC and built baths, a dam to collect fresh water, founded a harbour for commercial trade as well as dwelling houses that included an extensive villa. More information may be found at the very good onsite museum, Cerro Da Vila, next to the post office down at the marina.
Here there is information not just on the Roman settlement but also on the Visigoth and Moorish artefacts found in the area. This gives a good founding for those of you who are interested in this wonderful area.
