“A little gem”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have just moved nearby and decided to visit.It is set in beautiful surroundings and not difficult to imagine the gallo romans going aboout their daily lives. Around 350 BC it still gives off a gentle feeling of history and definitely worth a visit if you like history but not if you expect Disney World with shops selling plastic Roman helmets and Swords. There is nothing to buy so don't expect to come away with shopping bags full of tacky mementos.

“Just Use Your Imagination”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

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.

“Wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if you're nearby it's worth the trip”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

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 that anything remains is fairly impressive. The cost of admission is 3 euros but when I went on a Sunday there was no fee. They have information available in English.
