Be part of the civilization that changed the world.
The PO.RO.S – Museu Portugal Romano in Sicó is located in Condeixa-a-Nova, a municipality where many vestiges of Roman civilization are still visible.
Opened in May 2017, PO.RO.S has 1200m2 of exhibition area. In 11 thematic rooms it 's possible to learn and experience the culture of the Roman occupation in Terras de Sicó.
2000 years ago, at the edge of the empire, the Romans established, in Conimbriga, a truly Romanized center that mirrored the customs and traditions of its capital, Rome.
In this museum, you will travel back in time and return to the golden age of Roman civilization.
At PO.RO.S every visitor starts by passing through the tunnel of time. From this point on, the only elements of the 21st century are the multimedia installations that will teach you every detail of the Roman people.
With the interactive experiences, you'll feel like a soldier ready to leave for another conquest, you'll be taken to a relaxing Roman spa and you'll dress like a true Roman of the time with the help of an interactive mirror.
This museum is the right place to discover how Rome embraced diversity, reconciled diverse cultures, religions and languages, transforming them into the cradle of the Western civilization.
PO.ROS was distinguished in 2018 with the Heritage in Motion "Best Achievement Award".
