The village of Chassenon has preserved remarkable evidence of the Gallo-Roman period and especially of the ancient village of Cassinomagus. The Cassinomagus thermal baths, remains dating from the end of the 1st century, are open to the public and feature underground rooms, boilers, swimming pools and hot and cold rooms. Heaven for archaeology fans...
The town of Chassenon houses the remains of one of the most important archaeological sites in the Charente.
Located on a plateau surrounded by the Vienna, the ancient Cassinomagus consisted of a town, now buried, and a large sanctuary where they discovered the three temples, theater, aqueduct and baths.
The baths were built in the late 1st century AD, with stones from the crash of a meteorite. They have been used for over three centuries, as sanatorium inside the sanctuary.
