Photographer's Note

Here's snother photo of the House of the Fountains, in Conimbriga. This time it's just a detail and I've taken it at sunset, the only time of the day this place has sun, once it's covered in order to be protected from the effects of the weather.
This house dates from the 1st century and it was once a big roman house. Today it's covered Situated around 16 kms from Coimbra, Conimbriga is one of the most important Roman sites in Portugal. Occupied by the Romans from the 1st century BC till the 5th century AD, Conimbriga has been an important and wealthy city. Today it's a national monument and next to the ruins there's also a museum with the objects that have been found in the site.
