The Roman Villa Longuich is a partial reconstruction of a villa urbana in Germany near Trier. The villa was built in the 2nd century CE and was 110 metres (360 ft) by 28 metres (91 ft) in size. However, only a small part of it has been excavated and studied so far. Discovered in 1984 CE during land surveyor work, the buildings were excavated, conserved and then partially reconstructed. Today, we can visit a part of the former side wing, which has a bathing system.
