The Gallo Roman site at Champlieu
These ruins of a theatre, baths and a temple, usually
considered 2nd century, are all that remains of a once important agglomeration,
situated on the trace of the Roman Road from Senlis to Soissons. The open,
lonely setting, on a plateau, surrounded by wheat fields, near the edge of a
forest and out of sight of habitations, hidden in the river valleys below, has
an eerie but pleasant atmosphere, especially if visited on a weekday morning
when other visitors are few and far between.
Situation : about 1 hour North East
of Paris in the Oise.
