Reasons for trip

Tasciaca Gallo-Roman Site, near Thésée is signed off D176 between Montrichard and St Aignan and there is parking off the rough track which runs beside the site. This was closed for the season (usual charge €2.50) but in fact you can see virtually everything from outside the fence.

There are the remains of three buildings. One just has the foundations. The second has part of a wall left standing. The third building at the back of the site has a long tall stretch of wall standing with rooms off to the back. There are decorative bands of red tiles in the stonework and the window arches are picked out with red tiles. There is a small information board.

The site dates from about 138AD and was a multipurpose site with administrative, commercial and judicial buildings. It had no military purpose.

There is a small museum with artefacts from the site in Thésée.
