Its conquest by the Romans 2,000 years ago is an important part of Chur’s history as a settlement. Findings dating back to this period are housed in these protective structures designed by star architect Peter Zumthor.
The protective buildings covering the archeological finds from Roman times were designed by Graubünden's architect Peter Zumthor. They are a protective cover as well as a museum and a veritable architectural gem. The filigree lamellas of the buildings let the visitor guess the original extent of the Roman buildings.
The Roman ruins can be visited. The key to the protective buildings is available for a deposit at the Chur Tourism information centre. And the Graubünden Archaeological Service also offers interesting tours.
