ECHTERNACH – Villa Romaine

On the periphery of the small idyllic town of Echternach, there is a Roman villa – one of the largest and richest rural properties in the surrounding areas of Roman Trier – Augusta Treverorum.
Amongst vast tracts of agricultural land, the farm surrounded by walls extends over 10 hectares. This manor house was discovered in 1975/76, when diggers who were building an artificial lake hit remains of walls a few centimetres underground. After 15 months of excavation, the Roman manor house was cleared.
A genuine palace, it contained no less than 40, later even 70 rooms on the ground floor, with porches, courtyards, water basins, marble veneers, mosaic tiling, and underfloor heating.
