La villa romaine
lThe ArchéoLab exhibitions is located on the site of an ancient and luxurious Roman villa dating from the 1st or 2nd century AD and discovered in the 1970s. Of this villa, only a few foundations and above all a semi-circular mosaic remain.
However, the ruins of the Roman villa of the Priory of Pully are of little archaeological interest. To discover other Roman remains, we recommend reading the article dedicated to sites related to the Roman period in French-speaking Switzerland.
