A mini-Ancient Rome

1st Century B.C

Autun

At the time when Rome bestrode the ancient world, a number of cities rose from the earth to extend its empire and bring it benefits. Augustodunum (from the name of Emperor Augustus) was one of these! Prosperity and commerce made this multi-cultural town (originally Gaul and later Roman) a very powerful one at the time… and one filled with mystery! The temple of Janus, wrongly attributed to the two-faced God (one face looking to the past, the other looking to the future), the curious pyramid of Couhard whose purpose we still do not know… Autun is a city out of time, mixing history, religion and beliefs.
