Plateau des Antiques

Roman Mausoleum and Commemorative Arch

Head south out of St-Rémy on the road to Maussane, the D5, and after about 1 km you will see, on the right side of the road, two magnificent and remarkably well-preserved Roman monuments which form a unique pairing not found anywhere else in France. Park in the adjacent car park.

Perfectly Preserved

These are Les Antiques – two Roman monuments constructed around 30 BC at the entrance to the old Romano-Greek town of Glanum. The ruins are just a little to the south on the other side of the road.

The Mausoleum of the Julii, to give it its proper name, is incidentally 18m (60ft) high. Not in fact a tomb but rather a cenotaph built in remembrance of the dead. Construction took place in about 30BC, just before the accession of the Emperor Augustus in honour of his grandsons.
