Gisacum, Le Vieil-Evreux

3.6
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.

  • The Museum consists of a large room with objects of the period. I find this interesting piece for children visiting because the visit time is more than enough for children of 5 and 10 years. The questionnaire distributed to children allow them to visit in a playful way. The outside is also well laid out and very well maintained. The visit is free. Visit emergency

  • A very interesting place, not only for the ruins brought to light, but also for the explanations and the objects inside the great Hall. If you choose his day, there are also animations such as Gallo-Roman games or performances in costumes.
