Musee de site Villa-Loupian, Loupian

4.2
#6 of 45 in Museums in Herault
View an ancient Roman farm villa and Gallo-Roman mosaics at Musee de site Villa-Loupian, a patrician site during the 1st and 2nd centuries CE. The archeological site was especially valuable because of its thermal springs. However, the multicolored mosaics that decorate 13 ground-floor rooms remain the main attraction here. The rich tiled designs represent some of the most elaborate and well-preserved examples of the art form. History enthusiasts as well as art students will particularly appreciate the site.

    Now we understand! You have to be lucky to be able to visit this site. Are more often closed than open. What's the purpose of closing if the visits are outside in the open and not guided? Lunch pauses...  more »

    Despite several negative reviews, I still gave her chance to establish. Home: blah blah, 2 people completely disinterested and disillusioned, but good either! Visit: attack by a video without interest that tells the conservation of the site, but we still don't know what we're going to visit! Of course you might expect, but an overview would be nice. Then, the Space Museum: crap! For a trip back in time, it is successful, you that's income in the 1980s! Finally the villa she even: we visit finally only a small part of the villa (compared to what is announced in the museum space). Traffic and conservation is very well done, it catches up with the rest. In conclusion: decent rate given site and conservation (€5), but frankly all the sites boast the villa, and it seems abandoned. Very nice what!

    Well exposed site. The reading of signs dive you into our distant past. Moving. Very friendly staff.

    Very interesting site. The guides do a good job of explaining the mosaics, the technologies used. on the other hand they present you a clear view on Roman society and it's inner workings.

    Very nice research work for the restoration of the frescoes of a Gallic home, well worth a visit.
