Benefiting in the first decades of an architecture very similar to that of Entremont, it was not until the 1st century to see aquæ Sextiæ equipped itself with a typically Roman conception, made up of a cardo and a decumanus which give it a Orthogonal plan. A forum stands in its center, while a basilica dominates the northern part of the city.
