The sanctuary in the Grienmatt area – a place of pilgrimage for the sick?
At the western edge of the town you can visit some of the most important sacred buildings in Augusta Raurica.
Today the bottom part of the core construction survives. We do not know what this edifice looked like in detail. We do know, however, that it stood at the centre of a large rectangular square which was surrounded by porticoes.
Adjacent to the building was a bath complex. As opposed to the usual Roman baths, this facility had two rooms which were both fitted with several built-in bath tubs. We may assume that these baths were used for remedial spa treatments under the guidance of medically trained priests.
