This Blog is a journal about Roman roads in Portugal by José Pedro Soutinho.

It’s associated with my personal project initiated in 2004 to develop a website about Roman heritage now centralized under the domain:

This a journal about my studies in roman roads. Portugal has indoubetely an impressive cultural heritage but sometimes other layers of its history are frequently overlooked. My work will hopefully raise some eyebrows of people visiting this unique country. The roman presence is sometimes subtle but always very impressive and lasting. Is about getting a real feeling of the Roman rural landscape still well preserved. This journal and the associated website form a kind of a guide for those wanting to discover this incredible historical and natural patrimony.
