    • Under your feet, over 2,000 years of history !

      Overlooking the Gironde estuary on more than 40 ha, the archaeological site of Fâ in Barzan, in Charente-Maritime, gradually reveals the remains of a prosperous city that played a leading economic role in the Gallo era -romaine, undoubtedly one of the most important ancient port cities of the Atlantic coast in connection with Médiolanum (Saintes) but also the rest of the Roman Empire.

      Through its museum which presents the furniture discovered during the excavations still in progress and an outdoor visit route along the gradually enhanced vestiges (thermal baths and sanctuary) , the archaeological site of Fâ invites you to discover the history of the place and better understand Gallo-Roman life. Daily guided tours and Gallo-Roman entertainment during all holidays in all areas. The average visit duration is 2 hours.

    Great presentation of the remains of the Roman baths. The audio guide takes you through the structure as if you were partaking in the ritual yourself. There are many artistic renderings of what each area might have looked like from various angles which gives you a good idea of the grandness of the rooms. There is ample free parking on site. Staff are extremely knowledgeable of the site and friendly. Highly recommended to visit!

    Would have been more helpful if information had been provided in other languages, other than a simple sheet, as it's not always easy to imagine all from scant remains? But the fact that anything does remain is amazing, and I'm sure provides many insights into Roman life at the time? It was beautifully laid out and preserved.
