In the footsteps of the past

In Balaruc, numerous vestiges and monuments bear witness to the passage of the centuries.

Attracted by the curative virtues of the thermal waters of Balaruc, Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans successively settled on the peninsula to build an important city. Numerous archaeological discoveries today bear witness to this past. The remains of the Gallo-Roman basilica are evidence of this presence.

After an eclipse of several centuries, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the development and reputation of Balaruc-les-Bains continued to grow. It was at this time that the Pavillon Sévigné was built, the first thermal establishment.

During the 19th century, there was a continuous increase in the number of visitors. Famous people such as Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, Paganini and Joseph Montgolfier came to Balaruc-les-Bains for a cure.
