Gallo-Roman ruins Les Cars

The archaeological site of Les Cars is one of the most remarkable ancient sites in the Limousin. Between moors and forests, on the Plateau de Millevaches, granite blocks whisper to us a history that is almost 2000 years old. It takes us on the trail of the Gallo-Romans who came to settle in the lands of Haute-Corrèze in the 2nd century A.D. Here the plan of a villa with water running through it can be seen, and there large mausoleums emerge from the chaos... Your imagination runs wild, and your archaeologist's soul awakens. To guide you through this journey back in time, mediators are present on site all summer, not far from a small sunny terrace.
This site was rediscovered by Marius Vazeilles in the early 20th century. The archaeological pieces of the site can be discovered at the Musée d'Archéologie et du Patrimoine Marius Vazeilles in Meymac.
