The excavated Balácapuszta villa-farm is the most prominent of the Roman settlements in the Balaton region. The main section of the villa consists of buildings with pillared inner courtyards (peristyliumos), which may have been the ornamented dwelling house of the landowner or his tenant. The frescos and mosaics are ranked among the highest quality art treasures of Pannonia. The building, from Italy and constructed in at least three periods, as well as the other dwellings and farm buildings, were inhabited from the 1st century to the end of Roman rule. In the exhibition, some of the mosaics and frescos may be seen in their original sites.
