The Romans built the mosaics with small cubic pieces called tesserae. The word tessela comes from the Latin tessellae, which in turn came from Greek and means, four. Thus the mosaic work is called opus tessellatum. The materials for these tesserae were limestone rock, colored glass, ceramics, etc.
The Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila are an Archaeological Station located next to the sea coast, practically in the geographical center of the Vilamoura tourist complex, located in the district of Faro, in the municipality of Loulé and more precisely in the parish of Quarteira. Consisting of several Roman baths and mosaics dating back more than 2000 years. In this place, occupied by successive civilizations, namely Romans, Visigoths and Arabs, there are living testimonies of people and people who built buildings here and stayed here for nine centuries.
