The villa of René Clavel, lover of antiquities


High above Augusta Raurica, surrounded by a well-maintained historical park, is the country estate of chemist, pilot and globetrotter René Clavel (1886-1969). As part of an exclusive tour, we will guide you through the house with its original interior whilst recounting stories about the Clavel family from Basel. A great connoisseur of antiquities, the wealthy patron wished to enable the wider public to experience Roman culture first-hand, which prompted him to donate the Roman house to "the people" in 1955.
