Lalonquette Gallo-Roman Museum

Lalonquette, France

Located in Northern Bearn in the Atlantic-Pyrenees, the gallo-roman museum of Lalonquette traced the history of a rural gallo-roman house build during the first century and which developed until the fifth century of our era. Supported by an elaborated museography depicting the restored mosaics and thanks to a playful approach illustrated by showcases of the collections, the museum offers to discover the specificities of the villa through several themes (day to day life, aristocratie, agriculture, architecture, etc.).

Perfect for young and old. The guide is captivating. The “excavation” workshop is great for kids.

This archaeological site is of no interest. All that remains of the Gallo-Roman villa are rows of pebbles which materialize the imprint of the walls on the ground. All the remains of the site have been moved to the museum located a few kilometers away. So that there is no longer any link between the historic site and the remains discovered during the excavations, which makes the site lose all its interest.

We didn't really know what this little museum would be. Surprise, the building is brand new. Second surprise the really cheap price. Third surprise, we are going to have a guide, an art history student. Top museography, nice and clear explanations. Never off-putting. The whole family, children (11 and 13), parents and grandparents, we all had a blast. Thank you. Then we tried to walk to the villa. There is progress to be made on the legibility of the path and the signs sometimes placed apart. In short, we reached the villa by car and here too it is great. Congratulations to this great achievement.

Beautiful museum, interesting guided tour, very friendly staff, the only regret of the children: no archaeological workshop included in the guided tour. We will return with great joy to participate in the various workshops.

Great museum, the 2 guides we met today were adorable and a big thank you to the charming young lady who was able to adapt her speech to a very young audience

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
