An antique citadel, a rich museum presenting rare excavated objects

The site of Ensérune (Languedoc-Roussillon) is one of the most important citadels of the Mediterranean Midi. The excavations, which have been underway since 1915, have revealed the traces of a dwelling dating back to the middle of the 6th century BC and lasting until the start of the 1st century AD.
