Located in the village of Šempeter v Savinjski Dolini this Roman Necropolis is one of Slovenia's most famous archaeological sites, which ranks among the finest memorials from the Roman era anywhere in Europe. The reconstructed marble tombs of wealthy families from Roman Celeia dating from the 1st to the 3rd centuries CE were uncovered from 1952 under the supervision of Josip Klemenc and other archaeologists, and reconstructed by architect Jaroslav Černigoj.


Excellently preserved stone blocks, reliefs, and inscriptions bear witness to Roman dignitaries and their lives two millennia ago. Their names and fates are known, and their tombs are not silent memorials but a priceless source of information for archaeologists. The reliefs reveal the rich spiritual world of the Roman population and illustrate the clothes worn by the natives and Roman settlers, while the inscriptions tell us about the high offices they occupied in nearby Celeia.

Visitors can also view the eastern part of the site and discover what ancient Roman tombs looked like. A number of other tombs and simple inhumation graves have also been reconstructed along a 326 metre-long section of the Emona-Celeia Roman road. The 9-metre-wide road is one of the longest preserved ones in Europe and led from Aquilea (Italy) though Ljubljana (Emona) and Celje (Celeia) to Ptuj (Petovia).
