Nouvelle-Aquitaine Lectoure Museum

Lectoure Museum (Musée de Lectoure or Musée archéologique Eugène-Camoreyt) has an important collection of Roman altars used in "Bull Worship" (ceremonies using bull's blood) in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. Some very good Roman mosaics found in the nearby area are also on display.

Lectoure is a very pretty small town. We visited this museum in 2011 and enjoyed the displays. The Roman altars are fascinating and there are some good Roman mosaics.

Location: France - Midi-Pyrénées - Gers - Lectoure
The museum is located in the center of Lectoure, near Condom in Gascony. The entrance is off the main square by the tourist office, in the Hotel de Ville. The museum is in the basement of the building.
