During the summer of 1975 we traveled through France, and it marked the beginning of my interests in visiting the Roman remains scattered all over Europe, the Middle East and North of Africa. My travel website documents many adventures.
1975 is long ago, so not all memories are in good order. In the south ofÂ France I made slides of Â a roman ruine tower, and until yesterday forgot completely where andÂ the name of theÂ thing.Â
This week I bought the book The Roman Remains of Southern France, a Guidebook, by James Bromwich.
This book helped me identify the site, its is La Turbie. La Turbie was famous in Roman times for the huge Monument that Augustus made to celebrate his victory over the Ligurian tribes of the area.
