AMPHORALIS - Sallèles d'Aude

The Gallic/Roman remains of this 2000 year old amphora and pottery factory are situated some 12 kilometres from "Le coq du Nord". They include a fascinating insight into the trade in wine and olive oil that existed between this region of France and Rome at the height of the Roman Empire.

The museum has been housed in a modern building which has been cleverly designed so as to allow you to better visualise life in an ancient factory as well as to exhibit some of the fascinating remains that have been discovered on this ancient site.
