Glanum did not really become a populus city until the age of Augustus, when the wealth of the empire spread out to include it. It was then the city began to thrive.
According to archaeological experts, this structure was a Roman mausoleum for two members of the Jules family. This monument dates from 30-20 BC and is said to be in a remarkably good state of preservation.
If you look closely you'll see that a round "temple" complete with columns and pyramid-shaped roof sits atop this structure.
The ruins can be explored from April-August from 10am-6:30pm daily; Sept.-March on Tues. and Sun. from 10:30am-5pm.
As we traveled to St. Remy, we noticed these ruins alongside the roadway. They are remnants of the ancient town of Glanum, first settled by the Celts, then taken over by the Romans about 100 BC.
Archaeologists believe that soil and runoff from the mountains slowly covered the structures, hiding them from sight until the 19th century when a few artifacts were found.
Serious excavations weren't begun until the early 1920's. This Roman Arch of Triumph is thought to be from 20 AD.
