Gisacum, Evreux
(3.7/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
Gisacum was a Gallo-Roman religious sanctuary in the 1st Century AD. It has been excavated with increasing care since the early 19th century. The remains of a Roman theatre, a palace, baths and an aqueduct have been discovered, as well as various relics, notably the bronze statue of Jupiter Stator (the king of the gods in ancient Roman mythology), which are now deposited in the museum of Évreux. You can see this vast sanctuary from 2000 years ago that had a unique plan: monumental public structures isolated at the center were surrounded by a vast empty space, with the urban habitations around a hexagonal periphery, almost 3.5 miles (5.6 km) in circumference.

  • Excellent welcome and nice site if you've never been to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Delphi and others

  • We went as a family. The visit of the Gallo-Roman archaeological site is free and is a three time: an exhibition room permanently to situate the work of excavations, the remains, the history; a temporary expo hall on the gallo-Roman tools and finally the archaeological site outside. There is awareness of the historic and archaeological work by being there. Kids puzzles to solve with codes to find. These codes are used to open locks giving access to the contents of a safe in stone and receive a reward. The game is well done because educational and motivating. The reward was much appreciated.

  • On several hectares, a trip back in time with our ancestors the Gauls, and Romans. A place to visit very rewarding, a complete Museum and interesting ongoing excavations. Regular entertainment for children throughout the year. Free access!
