The peninsula of Tróia on the southwestern Atlantic coast of Portugal was the site of an important Roman industrial complex that developed from the first century ce. Today the archaeological site preserves the remains of industrial facilities such as fish‐salting factories, balnea, insulae, diverse funerary monuments, and an Early Christian basilica. Tróia slowly declined during Late Antiquity and in the late fifth to early sixth century ce life gave way to a vast necropolis.
