Casal Romano da Malafaia


There are remains of buildings that have arisen from excavations, increasing the questions as the works were developed. Its configuration points to an agricultural farmhouse, from the Roman period, built with schist and granite (very distinctive marks of this territory), but a capital found here cast doubts on the character of these constructions. There are three moments in which there was human presence here. Somewhere between the second half of the 1st century and the beginning of the 3rd century, between the 2nd and 7th centuries and by the 10th century, curiously the century in which the first Arouca Monastery was founded.
