This crypt was prepared in 1980 to protect all the archaeological pieces discovered from the works of 1965. These elements come from buildings which was in the square from the antiquity to the 19th century. There are important rests from the galo roman empire, the Middle Ages and the foundations of a big basilica with five naves, maybe one consacrated to Saint Stephen
