Roman Pretorium

Traces of the Romans' stay in Cologne can be seen under the town hall building, where the ruins of the palace of the Roman governor (Latin Praetorium, German Prätorium - römischer Statthalterpalast), dating back to the I-IV centuries, were discovered. n e. This is the most significant Roman building on the Rhine.
