Ron and I love Roman archeological ruins and so we did all 4 of us visited Glanum on a very Hot day. An open area where there was no shade to escape the heat, we did not spend much time here. These crumbling stones are the foundations of a Roman market town, located at the crossroads of two ancient trade routes between Italy and Spain. Well the ruins are, well...ruined to say the least, the setting at the base of the rocky Alpilles is lovely. Hard to believe that about 2500 people lived in Glanum, it was a important town with grand villas, temples, a basilica, a forum, a wooden dam, and aqueducts, it was not important enough to justify an arena or a theater like Arles, Nimes and Orange.
