During your holiday in Portugal's Alentejo region a visit to Miróbriga is worthwhile.
Miróbriga is close to the sea and within walking distance of Santiago do Cacém and at the crossroads of four strategic roads (between Sines, Beja, Alcácer do Sal and Lagos) and was in its heyday a pilgrimage.
In the ruins of this Roman city is the only existing Hippodrome where chariot races in Portugal as in the movie "Ben-Hur" took place. The chariot races were mass displays that attracted spectators from miles around.
Visit the two well-maintained spa buildings, a bridge and many other things that Miróbriga a famous city made.
A little bit of culture during your holiday.
