"A Roman Site"

In the first century AD, the Romans built a large rural sanctuary about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) west of Toulouse. All that remain are the swimming baths (now in the basement of an apartment building), and the amphitheater, once used for gladiators' tournaments. During the 4th Century, a lot of the bricks were removed from the latter, and used in the construction of other buildings. But some features, like the vomitoriums, are well preserved. All in all, it's well worth a visit. The guided tours, organized by the Saint-Raymond museum, include both the amphitheater and the baths; book in advance.
