Fremo above ground is good but below its remarkable, The Roman water storage systems is remarkable both for its design ( no water stagnation) the brickwork used and the application of concrete. It's simply a must miss visit .

WE visited this on Thursday evening during the antiques market. Nice to have a look at how ingenious the ROmans were! It is just a 30 minute visit and all you can see is the tanks, but if you realise when and why and how they were build you will be impressed!
