Open-Air in Avenches

The ancient city of Avenches (the former Roman city of Aventicum) organises an open-air exhibition on the theme of air.  Five artists take a square, a garden, a street or the sky as the location of their (monumental) works. Moreover, many shop windows are decorated with colourful images on this theme. The exhibition takes a route through the streets and alleys of the medieval city centre. The Roman amphitheatre and its medieval tower as well as the Roman theatre and temple complex are also a permanent (open air) museum. Further information:
