As we known, the Romans were at the very heart of Europe. The Rimska Nekropola (Roman Necropolis) is one of the most important remaining sites from the Roman Era in Central Europe and in Slovenia.

 

Approximately 2000 years ago, one of the major roman roads was going through Šempeter, just across the Rimska Nekropola. This major road was connecting the important cities of Emona (Ljubljana), Celeia (Celje), Poetovio (Ptuj) and Aquilea (Oglej).

 

After a big flood, the entire area was submerged until 1952, when the statue of a sitting woman was discovered accidentally during works in the orchard. Excavation works followed and Rimska Nekropola was restored.

 

The Rimska Nekropola is the sanctuary of over 100, very well-preserved, family tombs dating over 2000 years each. The largest tombstone is the one from the Spectatius family, which can be distinguished by the graving of the four seasons in its bottom part.
