Fields next to the siteThe 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.
