Núcleo Arqueológico da Rua dos Correeiros

Roman remains were discovered in the basement of the Fundação Millennium (the former Banco Comercial Português). A museum area explains the history of the Baixa district from the 7C onwards. Visitors can see the overlaying of buildings, from the Pombaline period down to the phreatic layer. The site was used as a pottery workshop, a necropolis and then a harbour area. Note the 3C mosaic, an oven dating from the Moorish period and a part of the Pombaline anti-seismic structure.
