Museu de Lisboa - Casa dos Bicos
Long-term Exhibition

Presenting as a museum some of the archaeological structures found in diverse archaeological campaigns that have taken place in this area since 1981, the exhibition provides new data on the occupational evolution of the site, revealing to us the various stages of the evolution of this portion of the riverfront from the Roman period to the present day.

From the Roman city of Olisipo, are now revealed traces of a factory of fish preserves and condiments, probably set up in the First Century AD next to the river beach.

A semicircular portion of the wall and tower also documents the defensive reinforcement which was a characteristic of Roman cities from the end of the Third Century and through other archaeological remains, it is clear that in this place, the old Roman wall was incorporated in the later Medieval wall.
