When the construction works of a house were taking place in 1992, in Sendim in the county of Felgueiras, remains of walls and abundant traces of Roman pottery typology came into sight. The estate exhumed in these archaeological excavations is diversified, consisting of thousands of fragments of pottery, common kitchen and tableware, sumptuous ceramics, glass, metals, coins and bronze. Some pots, plates, vases and bowls (currently being recovered) will integrate the museum collection that is on display at the Interpretation Centre. Apparently, the villa was built in the second half of the first century d. C., with a likely recast at the end of the fourth century / early fifth century, with several additions, among which stand out the spa. It was destroyed during the Swabian invasions in the second half of the fifth century C. (Property of Public Interest)
