Route
“De opgravingen Ruins of Milreu tonen de overblijfselen van een rijke Romeinse villa. Deze Romeinse ruïnes liggen 900 meter ten westen van Estói en zijn zo groot en imposant dat ze oorspronkelijk als een stad werden beschouwd. De villa, bewoond rond de 1e eeuw na Christus, heeft de karakteristieke peristyle vorm, met een galerij met kolommen rond een binnenplaats. Het hoogtepunt is de tempel gewijd aan een watergod, de vismozaïeken en het voormalige centrale zwembad.”
