CONIMBRIGA – Conimbriga Mosaic

In Conímbriga, one of the best preserved archaeological site in Portugal, mosaic floors and foundations of many houses and public buildings remain. The city, located along the road connecting Bracara Augusta (Braga) and Olisipo (Lisbon) included its own bathing complex, a sophisticated heating system, ornamental pools, and colonnaded gardens. The mosaics on the entire site are in almost perfect condition, with incredibly detailed and colorful designs. Some, located in the so-called House of the Fountain, depict famous scenes from mythology (the Minotaur in the Labyrinth, Actaeon being eaten by his hounds, Perseus showing the head of Medusa to the sea-monster, Bellerophon battling the Chimera).
