It may come up short on the scale and aspiration of a portion of Provence’s better-known Roman landmarks, however for a brief look into regular day to day existence in Gaul, this old town has no equivalent. A Roman state established around AD 27, the remaining parts of this once-flourishing town have been unearthed – complete with showers, discussion, segments, commercial center, sanctuaries and houses.

Two landmarks mark the passage, 2km south of St-Rémy – a tomb (from around 30 BC) and France’s most seasoned triumphal curve, worked around AD 20.

The site was first settled by Celto-Ligurian individuals around a hallowed spring in the sixth century BC, before later being received and vigorously redeveloped by the Romans. As you meander up the central avenue, pay special mind to the remaining parts of the hypocaust framework used to warm the showers, and the underground waste system along the central avenue. Under the gathering, unearthings have uncovered an immense underground well that once provided the town with its water. As you walk further up the slope, you move into the more established piece of town, and as you pass the remaining parts of the sanctuary of Heracles, you arrive at the site of the first sacred spring that was first adored by the Gauls, and later by the Romans as well.

Close by, a path prompts the head of a rough slope with extraordinary perspectives over the whole site.
