Amphoralis, a dozen kms north of the ancient capital Narbo Martius, is a former workshop for the production of Gallic amphoras, updated in 1976. Its museum overlooks the archaeological excavations of an ancient pottery factory (1st-3rd century). It allows visitors to discover the daily life and activity of these potters who produced wine amphoras en masse, but also different building materials (bricks, tiles) and everyday crockery. In the park, an outdoor trail leads to the reconstructions of ovens and a Gallo-Roman dwelling, built identically to the remains found. The potters' garden presents more than 160 species of plants listed by Latin agronomists. The plants are divided into 5 different uses: food, medicinal, condiment, ornamental and artisanal. A walk in the arboretum allows you to discover the wood species used at the time for cooking. Free for children under 26 years old.
