Travel back to Gallo-Roman times! In this archeopark, between gardens and vegetable patches, you will have a chance to be a blacksmith, a potter, a baker... A wonderful immersive, historical experience.

2000 years ago, the Gallo-Roman villa in Malagne, then fully operating, was one of the largest farms in northern Gaul. Today, the archaeological park takes you on a discovery of the everyday life of the villa's inhabitants.

Cultural heritage, nature and culture

Along the paths, the well preserved remains reveal a barn and forge, peaceful gardens, cultures, animal breeding, crafts and experimental archaeological workshops. You can also enjoy the terrace, and an interactive area.

A site brought back to life

This open sky museum features a towed reaper machine from Gallo Roman times. The gardens and crops are quite unique too, with 350 plants used then. You will learn about the tools, techniques, natural pesticides used too.

This protected archeopark, working with the Famenne-Ardenne Geopark, hopes to be recognised as a UNESCO site.
