New archaeological site in Tongeren
For the first time, the Teseum Archaeological Site in Tongeren, Limburg, will reveal 2,000 years of archaeology. Visitors can head underground to discover artefacts from no less than seven churches that lay buried below the earth of the Basilica of Our Lady.
Tongeren was the first town of Belgium, and this unique new experience gives you a chance to glimpse its incredible history - dating back to ancient Roman constructions. The walls and foundations of the old Tongeren town are still standing, and on view under the church. Traces of Roman construction works have also been found.
