Sudelfels, Gallo-Roman Place of Worship



brief description: 

Gallo-Roman place of worship with several small temples and a secular building which probably served as lodging for pilgrims. Fragments of statues and inscriptions and numerous votive offerings suggest that the place of worship was dedicated, amongst others, to the Celtic goddess Sirona, who rules over sacred water sources and is associated with healing springs.
