Whether for its singularity or its monumentality, when arriving at Troy, do not forget to visit the Roman ruins.
Start by getting carried away by the natural beauty of the site, inserted in the Natura 2000 Network, in a dune landscape that begins next to a lagoon and extends along the edge of the Sado estuary.
The tour invites you to go back to the 19th century. I d.C. and to know a national monument that survived more than 2000 years, with houses, factories, thermal baths, mausoleum and necropolis, that identify the Roman citizenship.
It is impossible to remain indifferent to the dominant presence of the workshops and their tanks where the fish was salted and the emblematic fish sauces sold throughout the Empire were made. Its quantity makes us think of the immensity of people who worked the fish, from the fishermen to the slaves and their masters. Will you be able to smell the fish odor of the Roman Trojan?
There are six centuries of history, I and the century VI AD, in a space blessed by nature. Troy, the “Pompeian of Setúbal”, as referred to by Hans Christian Andersen, was thought to be the scale of the Empire and is the largest center of salting fish production in the Roman world.
