    • Gallo-Roman mosaics of the Dordogne.
      The 1st- to 5th-century ruins, which were reoccupied in the Middle Ages, belong to the residential part of an aristocratic rural Gallo-Roman dwelling (a villa). The best-preserved part features a 60 m2 multifoil room with a mosaic oor, probably a dining room, annexed to a 320 m2 state room. What is most interesting about the site is the richness of its mosaics and uninterrupted occupation from ancient times to the present.
