The Roman cemetery, which extends along the part leading from the settlement to the east, is witnessing an increasing number of burials following the Christian method. However, you still bury your loved ones on the left side of the river. Despite Christianity prevailing as the religious practice in this area, you are still taking part in religious ceremonies at the grand sanctuary by the River Isontius (today’s Gradič nad Kobaridom) and celebrate Belenus, Apollo and Jupiter.
