Roman travellers were greeted at the gates of Augusta Raurica by an ostentatious funerary monument of a confident individual which paid homage to his influential family. Nowadays the monument stands in front of the east gate and, surrounded by an idyllic animal park with rare old breeds, transports visitors back in time. Grazing pigs, sheep, goats, donkeys, peacocks, grey geese, living animals of the kind the Romans had and their history as well as ancient ruins and a panoramic view of the historical skyline all paint a vivid picture at the entrance to the Roman metropolis of what life must have been like 1800 years ago and invite you to take an enjoyable and educational walk in the newly designed park outside the gates of the ancient town.
