    • In the Pyrénées-Atlantiques in the heart of the canton of Luys en Béarn, the small village of Lalonquette has been home to an exceptional archaeological site for more than fifteen centuries: a Gallo-Roman villa.

      Located in North Béarn in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the Gallo-Roman Museum traces the history of a Gallo-Roman rural establishment which emerged and developed from the 1st to the 5th century AD. Based on an elaborate museography featuring the restored mosaics, it offers thanks to a playful approach to discover the specificities of the villa around various themes (daily life, aristocracy, agriculture, architecture, etc...) illustrated by the presentation of the collections.

    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.

    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.
