Renewed Roman Villa in Balácapuszta Now Open
The first wall remains and wall paintings were found in 1904 by people ploughing in the Balácapuszta field of a village named Vámos in Veszprém County.

Soon it became apparent that traces of a Roman farm had been discovered. The farm in Balaca is the largest known Roman farm in the former Pannonia Province.

The famous mosaic floor of 62 m2 of its central building was discovered in 1925 with the help of the National Museum.

It is still the main attraction of the Roman Lapidarium of the Museum.

The other three mosaic floors were transferred back to their original places in 1984, in the year of the official opening of the gardens of ruins.
