Site archéologique de Montmaurin


The Gallo-Roman Villa of Montmaurin was discovered during excavations in 1946 by Georges Fouet. It was built in the mid first century and would have expanded until 350. It has since been redesigned in the 3rd and 4th centuries. This villa is one of the largest in France : its buildings cover an area of 19 hectares.

The monument, at that time, had no fewer than 200 great comfort rooms. The place was decorated especially with marble and mosaics, with glass windows fitted with a system of floor heating and running water. Recent excavations have permitted to discover the remains of the temple, ond the nymphaeum and of several courtyards.
