Gisacum, Le Vieil-Evreux
(3.6/5 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.

  • Visit to a Roman gallo in connection with the middle school history curriculum. Summer animations enhance the visit.

  • having visited Gisacum at Roman festivals last summer, I found that it was not so much to see except perhaps for a Roman Antiquities enthusiast; Apart from the ruins of walls unearthed and some bones and articles either kitchen or weapons dating from this period, nothing transcendent... for the ordinary people...

  • Roman days interesting and fun for children but no association is local. Too bad!
