Ambrussum is a magnificent Gallo-Roman archaeological site which has revealed an exceptional collection of buildings from the Gallic and Roman periods. The Romans conquered the area in 120 BCE and the city grew rapidly. The Via Domitia ran at the foot of the settlement. A paved road, leading out of the settlement, is with visible along with the traces of Roman chariot tracks.
