CASSINOMAGUS

Openings

Description

Take the 'discovery path' through this 25-hectare (61-acre) landscaped garden and see archaeological excavations - dating back more than 100 years - which reveal what life was like in ancient times. The Imperial baths, a sanctuary consisting of the temple of Montelu and 49 pits, two small temples, a theatre and an aqueduct have been identified as being part of Cassinomagus, a secondary town in an area controlled by the Gaulish tribe the Lemovices. A visit to the archaeological park plunges the visitor back into the atmosphere and surroundings of a Roman town during the first centuries A.D.: there are visits to the excavation site, a chance to play ancient games, exhibitions, children's workshops, meetings with experts.
