On the road to Roman Ruins of Milreu in Estoi I-XI centuries AD - Faro beach/foot shot
About 5 miles north of Faro, Portugal is Milreu, the remains of a rural Roman VIlla, including baths and running water network, a Roman temple, kitchens. The location was settled by the Romans and occupied for a thousand years, then presumably abandoned for another six hundred years. There’s also a Portuguese farm house from the 16th century, if you like that modern stuff!
This was an amazing cap to our wonderful Portugal trip. We spent a fine day in Faro before returning to Dublin for a day before heading back home. In a disruptively stupid juggle with our tumblr queue, I mistakenly already posted the entry from our final day in Dublin!
This is therefore the final post from our Ireland/Paris/Belgium/Amsterdam/Portugal trip of Autumn 2012!!!
We have plans to continue this tumblrblog with pictures of other trips we’ve already taken, though I expect our typical blog-diligence will have us updating it in fits and starts.
