About The Lyon Gallo-Roman Tombs
The Lyon Gallo-Roman Tombs (Tombeaux Gallo-Romain) are three reconstructed ancient burial chambers displayed at Place Eugène-Wernert.
Dating from the 1st century AD, these tombs were discovered in the late 19th century during works constructing the railway system. In order to ensure their preservation, the tombs were painstakingly moved brick by brick to their current location.
Today, these ancient tombs are an interesting site and, in places, the original inscriptions giving details about the occupants of the tombs can be seen.
The Odeon of Lyon is a well-restored Ancient Roman theatre and part of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Lyon Roman Baths are the remains of a second or third century public baths complex.
The Lyon Gallo-Roman Museum displays exhibits relating to the city’s time under the Roman Empire.
