This was probably the most unexpected 'find' for us in Évora. We knew there were some Roman Baths, but couldn't really believe they were in the huge Town Hall.
We were a little embarrassed in case we had made a mistake so went cautiously into the building past a lot of people using internet terminals, approached the desk where we asked if we could see the Baths. We were directed round a corner and this is what we saw - the person is a painting by the way, to give an idea of scale.
It's quite difficult to get a good view because the viewing area is directly above the edge of the baths. A wide angle lens would be really useful somewhere like this.
Everything is remarkably well preserved, and here's why. - You can see signs of other building work and also wall decorations above the dark stonework that surrounds the bath. This is because there was a internal floor covering the bath, and a circular meeting room directly above.
The Baths were discovered during renovations - in 1994..
