  • Who half an hour has not scheduled in Mainz should here be sure to go. In the Centre of Mainz, in the passage of Romans, you will find a small, modest reception room. From there, it goes one level deep and already you can immerse yourself in the Roman period. The underground Temple of ISIS and of the "great mother" is just times as large as a school Hall.

The remains of the sanctuary were accidentally discovered in the year 1999 when carrying out the construction of the shopping gallery "Rome passage". This discovery provided an opportunity to take a fresh look at religious cults in the Roman Empire. Studies have shown that in the temple as offerings used pine nuts, corn, dates and figs, and perhaps animals, as indicated by numerous chicken bones. "Roman passage" was, of course, completed, but in his basement is now a small museum with ancient archaeological remains and modern multimedia installations, allowing to travel back in time to the era of ancient Rome.
