an archeological site
At the begining of our era, a roman villa was producing amphoras at a large scale near the Via Domitia wich linked Spain to Italy.
The reliefs of this villa are situated beneath our vines just a few hundred meters from the “modern” farm (17th century). It was partly excavated in two digs campaigns (1980-1983 and 2000-2002).
Archeologists have found owens and farm parts of the villa wich remains unexplored. We have a team, led by archeologist Jean-marc Ignace, that continue in 2002 the digs started last year.
Previously, the site was explored by a team of french CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) in the begining of 80s. The site was already known in reason of the important amount of amphoras and other roman poterys pieces and objects discovered along the years.
