The Roman town of Ammaia was founded in the 1st century, likely under the reign of Claudius. The ruins are situated along the margins of the Sever River, alongside the village of So Salvador da Aramenha. Discoveries include parts of a Roman city wall with towers and a gate on the south side, with residential buildings; a road; a monumental paved square; remains of a house in the location Quinta do Deo; parts of a public bath building; and a centrally-located forum with well-preserved temple podium, walls of a porticoes and cryptoporticoes.
