Glanum, Archeologic Site
Tuesday, January 29, 2019, the archaeological site of Glanum will be open only from 10h to 12h.

The site of Glanum was inhabited by the native population from about 500 BCE.
Around the 2nd century BCE, the town came under Greek influence as a result of contact with Greek merchants from Marseille.
Later it was colonised by Rome, from the 1st century BCE to the 3rd century CE.



Glanum was raised to the status of a Roman colony, and the great public, civil and religious buildings found in all Roman cities replaced the old buildings.
Around 260 CE, the town was destroyed by barbarian invasions. The survivors founded the village that was to take the name of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence about 1 km to the north, and the ruined town was soon buried and forgotten. Digging did not begin until 1921.
The great buildings that characterise the cities of Imperial Rome can still be seen, set along a central road: the temples, the basilica, the forum, the curia, and the baths and houses.
