The floor displays Roman ruins below--some intersting walls, wells, and arches. The displays show pieces, a couple stone tools dating back to around 1 million years ago! Worth a quick stop.

Short, yet wonderful to walk and see the ruins below. Also the mural explains a lot and it's great to be among history.

As you enter you’re handed plastic slippers for your shoes and walk over a glass floor looking down onto the excavations. There are some displays of finds and I found it an enjoyable way of displaying the Roman ruins.

Beja's archeological history since the Iron Age captured in a single room with a glass floor over mainly Roman remains. It's very well presented with the sort of concise explanations that makes a pop in visit very rewarding.

A good way of keeping Roman Beja alive (under a glass floor). Written explanations were good and there is a further display about Outeira do Circo, a late bronze age settlement near Mombeja to the north west of Beja.
