In roman times Bejas name was Pax Julia, an important city dominationg the plains of lower Alentejo.
Its contact with the rest of the roman world was upheld with the excellent construction of the roman roads and bridges, which still today exists in some places and in some other are covered over more modern roads.
One can say that the roman roads are the eqvivalent to todays internet, each place of importance connected to the vast road network, spreading culture, trade and news all over the empire.
New info (from July 09): It seems that this road is a part of the roman road, via XIII, going in an west to east direction, linking Beja with Beringel and continuing west.
Not much is left to see of the original paving, but close to the cache site some of it still remains.
