Preserving natural beauty

...and guiding visitors


Blending in

The architecture of the site museum, created by the Lunel office of Yvan Goroneskoul, appears to disappear in the garrigue. The only level barely showing in the landscape has walls dressed with dry stones that reflect the bright light of the South: everything is designed to minimize impact on its surroundings. And if a certain visibility is unavoidable, the use of traditional, local materials softens the effect.

Graveled, paved or rocky paths meandering through the site are punctuated with direction signs and explanatory notices – nothing further is needed, as the scenic beauty and the remains speak for themselves...


Adopting a responsible modus operandi

The actions of each of us as individuals create the environment of tomorrow. With its ironwrought sun-visor and photo-voltaic signs, the site museum has a high standard of environmental integrity. The patio offers a refreshing break for ramblers as well as other picnic areas where containers are provided for recycling.

In order that everyone can enjoy this walk, the picking of plants from the garrigue and its rocks is prohibited. A well-kept, clean site with the discretion and co-operation of visitors, the treasures of Ambrussum can be enjoyed by all. In addition to seeing the Ambroix bridge, the Via Domitia, the Oppidum and the staging post, you will be able to observe the profusion of plants and animals that inhabit the garrigue.
