  • Found this "hidden" place by chance, heading to the Cathedral Saint-Jean. The garden is just 2-x. The official name is "Archaeological area Castaing. Here is a small complex of archeological sites from the Roman period, about 2-3 centuries CE-columns, the remnants of the amfitetra and the aqueduct. That there was at that time is not yet known. In this place before the revolution the end of 18-th century was a church during the revolutionary events, and it was destroyed in 1870 year historian and archaeologist Castaing conducted excavations here, what are all these ancient stone remains and saw the light of day. They have recorded, and was laid out around the Park in English style. Joined one of the excursions as a result learned many interesting things about this place.
