SITE DE PANISSARS

In antiquity, Panissars was a small village, of which only a few vestiges now remain. This place was crossed by both the Via Domitia and the Via Augusta.
A unique place, on which, in 71 BC, General Pompey had his trophy built, a monument thus signifying his victory over the Iberians, which defined in ancient times the border between Gaul and Hispania.
Its architectural form was inspired by large monuments, most of which have disappeared today. The ruins of this trophy today make them the oldest ruins of Roman trophies in the world.
