Roman Gardens of the Villa Borg

Wherever the Romans settled, they brought their plants with them.

area: 7000 m²

That is how seeds, slips for grafting, bulbs and herbal shoots found their way, together with the horticultural knowledge of the Romans, from Italy to the northern provinces. A successful reconstruction of this botanical heritage is to be found in the gardens of the
Gallo-Roman estate of the Villa Borg – clearly divided into differently used areas. In one section, the water basins set in stone, column hornbeams and yews cut into geometric shapes, stone replicas of marble statues and wooden bridges reveal the life of luxury enjoyed by privileged Romans. In another, the multitude of medicinal and culinary herbs already known and variety of fruit and vegetables bear testimony to the Gallo-Roman art of healing and cooking. Tasters inspired by the Roman culinary art are available on the menu of the tavern.
