Welcome to the old Roman town of Alba Helviorum, now known as Alba la Romaine. Let yourself be carried away by the intrepid history of this village of character as you stroll through its cosy maze of cobbled streets and alleys.

Admire the medieval castle surrounded by its old village but don’t miss out on the ancient Roman town built on the lands of the Helvian tribe, one of France’s few remaining Gallo-Roman sites preserved under the wine-producing plain. Drive, cycle or ramble around and explore this area full of history.

WHERE IS ARDECHE’S VERY OWN CHAMPS ELYSEES ? Just walk down the cardo (main street) in Alba Helviorum !

A Museum
opening out onto the site…

At the MuséAl, experience first-hand the everyday life of the Helvians in their ancient city.

Uncovered during archeological excavations, these artefacts, both familiar and mysterious, reveal the origins of our culture and tell us a lot about our own lives today.
