This is a real little gem of a site. At the time of our visit, we were the only people there, and were able to wander at leisure. We did not have a guide, but the information and map provided were sufficient to get us around. It is easy to use one's imagination and to picture life here as it... More

We had a guided tour, in French (!) which was very informative and gave us a real insight into how important this part of France was to the Romans. Not a lot to see but for an insight into the history of the region, well worth the modest admission price.

Site guides available in French and English allow your imagination to run wild. Few mosaics but ample structural foundations remain to permit a fanciful stroll through antiquity. Bring a picnic. There are a few picnic tables near by, but no other commerce.

I went to the Gallo-Roman villa ruins in Montmaurin today. Not sure what I was expecting but there is not much there. The foundations of the structure still exist as well as a few walls and some columns. It must have been quite a spending place in it's day. It was built around 350 AD so I guess the fact... More
