Narbonne - horreum

Narbo Martius: important Roman city in Roman France, capital of Gallia Narbonensis, modern Narbonne.

A unique and well-preserved monument in Narbo Martius (Narbonne) is the Roman horreum, an underground store room for wine, oil, and weapons. Constructed in the first century BCE, it consists of several galleries, and cellars of various sizes. This complex is at some five meters below street level, and has recently - in 2006 to be precise - been made more accessible with an entrance hall that can be used for audiovisual presentations.
