The Roman Camp

Are you interested in archeology and history ?

With an exceptional historical past going back to Antiquity, Saint-Jean-Le-vieux, 3 km from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port,  existed already during the Roman Conquest.

In 15 BC, the Romans choosed a place down the Ports (mountain paths), open all the year long, to set up their camp.

This military base was, actually, a road station, a stopover on the trans-Pyrénées road from Bordeaux to Astorga in Spain. A  very well preserved thermal site can be visited.

In Saint-Jean-Le-vieux, you can visit the new Museum and its collection of archeological relics of the camp which is a conservation area since 1984. The collection gathers items excavated at the thermal site like Samian ware, amphoras, glasses, coins...
